Facing the future

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”—Martin Luther—

Looking at this quote takes me to the one in which Winnie the Pooh says, “What if it doesn’t?”
What if the world doesn’t go to pieces? What if the tree doesn’t fall on you? What then?

Accept what is happening today for what it is but look forward to all of the good things ahead. Plant your tree. Eat an apple. Hope and Love are eternal.
Share a smile. Give someone an apple
Everything is going to be all right.

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
