Tall Trees

when they say “Mathe smile more” and I think “hey man, this is it, I’m looking up!”

a messy sticky little escapade thing led me outside to a long soothing walk. it’s always best to walk beside other things that are alive I say. it all got me thinking that I don’t want to be the kind of person who can walk past trees and not appreciate their size, that they stand tall because of being rooted beneath and if one leaf falls off they remain as they are to await regrowth of more leaves. all that swaying and yet all that staying as well. It all got me thinking that I don’t want to be blinded by the noise in my head. i suspect it takes a little bit more to not get totally bent out of shape from the goals yet to be achieved. it takes some kind of tree-like hardiness too to tell your heart, ‘be still, I have got you. love freely, you are loved. be brave, do it now. and if you walk among tall trees, mind your life, look up.’
