A tree growing out of the ground is as wonderful today as it ever was.
It does not need to adopt new and startling methods.

  1. “There Is Nothing New Under The Sun

    (Ecclesiastes 1:9-14 NIV) What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. {10} Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.”

    I loved your quote about the tree not needing to adopt ‘new & startling methods’.It made me think of ‘nothing new under the sun’ & I set out to Google it. I am quite surprised to discover the quote is from the Bible. Lots of wisdom in there.

  2. By happenstance, I recently have been reading “Wildwood” by Roger Deakin. It is a classic, essential reading for those who love trees.

  3. Hum….I will have to ponder on this one Angie. Thanks. I too liked the ‘new and startling methods’ bit of this poem/quote.
