Every year I find I’m drawn to a set of symbols or archetypes that call to me for deeper exploration. Some connections I’ve been exploring for years, and it’s always a curious delight to see how the investigation unfolds.
I’ve often felt a similarity to an artist working in series, or as though I were compiling my own personal book of definitions. A WeberWikipedia.
Last night a friend saw my energy as tree-like and it was lovely been seen that way as I often experience myself that way. But it also re-awakened the urge to return to my work with tree symbology and I can’t wait to see how this gets expressed.
I’ve mentioned often on this blog (see here) that I love working with the practice of Lectio Divina, and that each month a bit of poetry shows up that becomes what I work with for the month. And today the piece showed up.
Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Do you feel a particular affinity with trees? One tree in particular? What messages to trees whisper to you? Do tell, I’d love to hear.
