On the walk today I reconnected with the old tree friend. I love when I see tree faces. This one feels like he envisioned growing up in a forest but had to settle for a suburban street in Los Angeles. I have to thank him because every time I walk by and look at him, I smile. He may be cranky but he makes me happy. I love seeing personality in nature. I don’t believe personality is limited to humans or mammals. The more I look at nature, the more I realize every thing is an individual expression of the life force. Every plant, tree, rock, bird, fish, mammal and human has an essence that is asking to be fully recognized.
