Being

“This particular tree will give glory to God…

…by spreading out its roots in the earth….

…and raising its branches into the air and the light…

…in a way that no other tree before or after it ever did or will do.” – Thomas Merton “New Seeds of Contemplation”

    • Thank you! Often I’m at a loss for words to compliment my photography, but Thomas Merton, a favorite author of mine, has come through more than once.

  1. I love the spring blossoms… makes everything so beautiful. Here in Shanghai there is a park just full of trees like this (but all the blossoms are gone now as we slide into summer). Back home growing up we had some of these trees in our yard. Fond memories… thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you for the comments! I took these a couple of weeks ago here in Korea and wish that they stayed longer than two weeks. The blossoms make spring my favorite season on this peninsula.
