Foot of the Tree - Image c Lynda Lehmann 2010
Gnarled, nicked, worn and splintered but always intertwined, trees roots rib the forest floor in a matrix of organic relationship, growth and mystery. Though their twists and turns may evoke dependency and struggle, tentativeness and uncertainty, a strong and enduring quality permeates their presence, as well.
Just like the groping roots and tangled vines, we are organic; we are of the Earth. As do the roots, vines and branches, each of us must move not in a straight line towards our goals, but in fits and spurts, past curves and detours, to reach them. Wish not for a straight and obvious path, but for the strength and tenacity to find your way.
