Birch outlines in mist.
I love the delicate, graceful shape of the Birch and how the branches combine into a delicate tracery. Thick mist filled the valley all day long, but it felt better to be out and enjoying it then sitting indoors thinking it looked heavy out! Its subtle, but there’s a delicate purple tinge to the thick mist behind the trees, as the setting sun illuminated the mist from somewhere above.
“Times are difficult globally; awakening is no longer a luxury or an ideal. It’s becoming critical. We don’t need to add more depression, more discouragement, or more anger to what’s already here. It’s becoming essential that we learn how to relate sanely with difficult times. The earth seems to be beseeching us to connect with joy and discover our innermost essence. This is the best way that we can benefit others.”
