Running to Stand Still


I was lucky enough to have captured this moment of my grown children putting up the Christmas village for the first time in years. You see we’ve been torn apart, hurt beyond words, silenced by our pain. The story is long, complicated and familiar to many.
Healing, forgiveness,  needed help, and most of all love are moving us forward into a place of peace. 




Somewhere close are the beavers who are chewing on this, and several other trees. Once they were all but completely wiped out of North America.  And here they are back. Nature will always go on with or without us Humans. We’re not very good stewards of our only planet. This tree gives me hope that no matter what we do, survival is part of our living planet too.
