Advice from a tree

While vacationing in Colorado last week, I had the opportunity to spend time hiking in the mountains and enjoying the Aspen trees. They are my favorite tree.

After the hike, on the drive back to our cabin in Estes Park, we stopped at a gift shop to look around, get a cup of coffee, and use the restroom. 😉

Above the restroom door was a simple yet enlightening poster. It contained an excerpt of the poem, Advice from a tree by Ilan Shamir.

It’s good advice for all of us, dear readers.



Advice From a Tree

Stand tall and proud

Sink your roots into the earth

Be content with your natural beauty

Go out on a limb

Drink plenty of water

Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!
