The tree uses what comes its way to nurture itself. By sinking its roots deeply into the earth, by accepting the rain that flows towards it, by reaching out to the sun, the tree perfects its character and becomes great. Absorb, absorb, absorb. That is the secret of the tree. --Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao---Art: Autumn Maple Colors by Dene
This picture reminds me of my grandmother's bedroom. Weird maybe...but she had gold-colored walls and the sun either set or rise in there, so it had an autumn glow to it. This is so comforting to me. :) Miss her!
