Celebrate Arbor Day

Quotes and Notes #171, April 24

“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.”—John Muir—

“Other holidays repose on the past. Arbor Day proposes the future.”—J. Sterling Morton—

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”—Anonymous—

I sometimes look up into a tall tree and wonder at the amount of serenity it would take to be able to calmly watch the sun move across the sky all day.

To use that sunshine and other elements of nature to make my own food and sustenance.

To turn slowly as the sun moves and then, in the night, to turn back and be ready to welcome the sun the following morning.

It has a sort of calming effect, doesn’t it?

Share a smile

Everything is going to be all right

John P. Schulz  “Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

    This. This is lovely. I’m going to tote this one around in my pocket and pull it out and read it when I need to remember to just breathe. Thank you for this gift. Just lovely.
