After reading a poem by Chris McGeown on his blog Short Poems and Other Nonsense, I started thinking about life experiences. And whether they fling us to the ground or help us to soar, we keep going forward and hope to learn from, or at least survive, those experiences. Or if it’s been awesome, we try to figure out a way to repeat it or continue the experience. Another opportunity to grow.
It kills me when people say “grow as a human being.” Well we aren’t going to grow as an elephant.
So I realized I want to “grow as a tree.”
I have a lot of rings on my tree-self and I hope that I will continue to experience the good and the bad and then mostly good and good again.
Now to work on looking willowy…….
