I'm leaving today to visit my roots in Norway and Sweden!

Whether getting back to them or laying them down, life has more meaning with them. Lovely image, especially the angle forcing the boys to be 'climbing'.

Sharon said...

Wise words. These have boys have found quite a root system!

Sharon Creech said...

Ah, roots. Tangled roots. Strong roots.

Wasn't Calvin Cooledge from Vermont? You seem to have refined (and improved upon) his knack for expressing thoughts in a few words.

The roots are needed for the riverbank as well, to prevent erosion and limit the silt for those downstream, as undoubtedly the wetlands downstream have been paved over so that the silt is no longer deposited as bottom land for prime farming.

You can change your leaves but not your roots.

Aren't they what makes us stronger?

P.S.: of course I forget to say that this tree is magnificent.

This is a fantastic image, not only because of the impressive tree but also for the boys and the wonderful background in green. Truly love it!

Jacob said...

Lovely! Roots can be nice or not. Sometimes it's best to leave well enough alone!

Re your comment on Cedar Key: Yes.
