Spirituality of Trees

Trees seem to do their feats so effortlessly.

Every year a given tree creates absolutely from scratch 99% of its living parts.

Water lifting up tree trunks can climb 150 feet an hour; in full summer a tree can, and does, heave a ton of water every day.

A big elm in a single season might make as many as six million leaves, wholly intricate, without budging an inch; I couldn’t make one.

"The greatest challenge of the day is to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each of us."
- Dorothy Day
