Instant Illumination

There are very few human beings
Who receive the truth,
Complete and staggering,
By instant illumination.
Most of them acquire it
Fragment by fragment,
On a small scale,
By successive developments,
Cellularly,
Like a laborious mosaic.
The Aspen leaves  were certainly singing and dancing high above our heads, and the entire forest was filled with their music. I’ve never scaled an Aspen Tree.  Soft wood, many of these tower above over  80 feet, live 150-200 years, and reproduce by seeds or roots sprouting and creating colonies of clones.

 

Lots of people were up at the Snowbowl in Flagstaff Arizona to view the Aspens this year, and a full school bus number of children were in the midst of a shared ecstatic experience, rolling about in the golden leaves, hugging the trees, laying with arms and legs stretched out,  gazing upward singing along to Aspen tunes. Laughing out loud , carefully selecting fallen leaves to pocket –   talisman’s for their journey.

Wishing an excellent week to one and all.

    1. I was really surprised at the amount of people who were enjoying the fall colors this year at the Snowbowl. This is usually the time of year just before ski season ..which is close…when it is just birds, bugs, and critters to share the Aspens with. I’m glad to see many enjoying them as I believe that the only way for us to protect our planets health is to get outside in the midst of nature.
      Always good to hear from you, appreciate your support of my website so much, may this week be a great one for you.
