"Trees Don't Rush" Time is a valuable commodity. People often say time is what keeps them from doing what they dream of doing, what they need to do, and what they should do. They believe that time is not available to them. The truth? Time is everywhere. It is ours to make, to destroy, to keep, to harbor. Nature teaches us many lessons about time. Nature doesn't hurry; it takes the time necessary to sculpt the greatest canyons and to bloom the most fragile blossom, and the world waits. Trees Don't Rush is a gift to all my fellow moment-missers. It encourages us to be mindful of the present, to take time to breathe, stretch, grow, and to nourish ourselves and others. The poems are meant to be pondered and the paintings contemplated in peace. The journal pages ask you to sit, be mindful, and then record reflections. May each portion of this book lead you to finding great joy in the moments of your life.
