GENTLENESS

What a gift to live with the world around us! We ask permission before we take something from our friends--or at least we should. We interact with friends in way that is good for us and good for them--or least we should.

We move them--or at least we should.

We move with respect toward those that shelter and care for us--or at least we should.

When I remember that trees are my friends who give me fresh oxygen to breath,shade,shelter,and protection, Iam reminded to be respectul.

"If you're going to break the branches off, talk to it. They're your friends." Grandmother told them what to do. Exactly what to do and how to do it. "Don't rush. Thats your friend," she said. If you're gonna break it off or chop on it,

you talk to it before you hurt it. They used to be people. And they became a tree. Good People. That is why they live today. Still here."
