Free people, remember this maxim:
we may acquire liberty,
but it is never recovered if it is once lost.
You forget that the fruits belong to all
and that the land belongs to no one.

Thank you, WG! 🙂 You left the door open, so…
Tree Wisdom: I am stumped. LoL “Don’t hurry your petrifaction.”
Or how ’bout this — from my character, The Hanging Tree
From its very beginnings, this big humble tree had maintained a neutral stance of equanimity, thus placing itself in the highest degree of servitude for mankind. It lived an amoral life. It could not judge between right and wrong. It had no such knowledge. It made no distinctions between the two. Time and again, the souls of the innocent and the guilty alike were welcomed into its inner sanctum.
Wonderful story, Keith 😉 Thank you for going out on a limb and Giving us a link back to your Soul-ful tree 😉 Best to you, as always, our never stumped for wisdom friend….
Thank you, too, E! 🙂 Have a great Sunday!
