Bela posted a lovely poem with a series of beautiful photos related to memories and re-membering. When we re-member, we make things whole with all members in place without surrendering mystery we cannot fully understand. Like a community, each member is related to one another.
The picture of the gnarled trees drew me. The trees remind me moving through time is not a fixed and linear path. Instead, beauty reveals itself in the detours and crags, re-membered as I reflect on where I have soujourned, joyous and painful. I am marked by joy and pain I experience.
I took this picture in Jasper National Park several years ago. The roots in random ways have emerged from the stones, offering a path up the hill amongst the trees they are connected to.
Great picture! Reminds me that even though our lives have rocky spots, we still flourish even if we have a few bumps and bruises to show for it.
Thank you Bev. Sometimes, it is the bumps and bruises that lead to flourishing.
Mahalo for sharing, Ivon.
