Breath of Fresh Air

Walter Elliott's avatar Walter Elliott

Stare at a tree and I guarantee a tree will stare back at you. In a moment's time you will be eye to eye with a new companion. Many people, however, rush about their busy day, worrying they are behind schedule, excited about recent events, or mourning their losses. They pass by hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands in a single day. Trees must find humans silly, as they watch us fret and pace. Occasionally they will whisper and wave in the blowing wind, beckoning us to notice them, too. When we do stop to ponder, what a breath of fresh air it is. Stare at a tree, and I guarantee a tree will stare back at you.
