There's a tree that houses many creatures

Each full of different stories. 

Moments of joy, moments of glory

There was a tree at our hotel in Formentera which stood out from all the rest. This tree had platforms at the end of each brand. The leaves all clustered together appeared like stages, waiting to be acted upon. 

Walking down the dusty path to the beach each day I looked up at this big tree wondering what stories it would tell if it could talk. I often wonder what trees and rocks would teach us if they could. Or perhaps they can, and perhaps we just can’t see it in the way we understand consciousness.
