Reading.... Grin





Did you know the extent of the branches of the tree are about the opposite of the root system below the ground? It is a beautiful thought is it not?

  1. That is a beautiful thought. I did not know, thanks for the lesson.

    1. It is not so much a lesson as on of thousands of trivia useless bits of knowledge that pops up every now and than.
      No, that is not all true. I see here a beautiful metaphore between book knowledge above the ground, and incorperated knowledge under the ground.


      If you read many books you tree will grow and many branches will be visible. But if you do not apply all that knowledge into daily actions your tree will fall in the first Autumn storm. Book knowledge is only strong and useful if it is firmly rooted.

    1. It really is a carefully selected picture. I love the double meaning in the double picture.
      Because only those who look well see what is beneath the bask.

    1. It's not that clear from the picture, Mona Lisa. I just thought of it this morning. Grin. But I like the analogy too much to let the opportunity slip.

      Thank you for your comment,
