Mike loves to landscape; I think it may be meditative. And so we have an A-piph-a-tree in the back yard.
It started with a fence followed by a pond and rock work. I believe this to be an ongoing project. Actually it started with the big Arizona White Oak in the untouched back yard.
This is a marvelously dreamy place to sit and think. And maybe have some inspiration, come to a realization, make a sudden intuitive leap of understanding, have an Epiphany.
Lately, I’ve had many epiphanies. Falling in love filled an empty part of my life I didn’t know I had.
Visiting my parents taught me to accept the things I cannot change. More on this later.

The tree of life has always been a strong image for me. I am terrestrial and usually have my feet planted on the ground. Maybe not barefoot like in my youth as my feet have become soft and tender. My arm-like branches reach out to capture what energy I can from the universe. I grow, especially when watered with the journey of life. My roots reach down into the earth for needed nutrients like the words of a treasured friend. I listen and learn.

My Word dictionary: an epiphany is a Christian festival marking the visit of the Magi to celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth or, in the Eastern Orthodox Church, the baptism of Jesus Christ. As a noun, an epiphany is the supposed manifestation of a divine being, the appearance of God.
