The Forest for the Trees

November 25, 2018 at 6:07 pm Leave a comment

I have always been fascinated with sky through trees. A quick scroll through my camera shows more pictures like the one below than anything else. C used to be the same. I remember the tree outside his toddler bedroom window and the hours he spent staring at the leaves moving in the breeze, turning, falling, and then growing once again.

I think I like this view because it calms my thoughts. It seems impossible to be anything but mindful when looking at a scene like this one. My brain can process things in the background while I am transfixed by blue through gold.

As we get ready to head home tomorrow after our visit with C, I expect my heart and head will continue to filter through the ups and downs of this trip in the coming days. It has been more difficult than I anticipated, and I do wonder what is next for this little family of ours when C comes home.

By the time that moment comes, however, seasons will be changing once again, and the view and perspective will – hopefully – be different.
