I am sitting at my desk while writing this, my window overlooking a beautiful view of my birch tree swaying in the wind. I must admit, that out of all the trees, (and I do have many favorites) the birch tree ranks up in the top 3 for me. I love how the leaves look like they are dancing when the wind hits them. It's quite beautiful to watch and if you ever get the chance to see it, please take note of it. It will bring a smile to your face. :)
But as I admire the dancing of the birch leaves, I'm reminded of why they are dancing, the wind is picking up and a storm is on the horizon. Nature is a true story teller, it allows us to read it's clues to what is to come. And hence, just like the swaying of the leaves on my beautiful 20 year old birch tree, I am reading a fascinating tale of, if I dare say, " a dark and stormy night." I've always told my children to watch for signs in the trees, they tell a story of things that have happened and of things to come, and with that the wind brings with it the clouds, clouds that once were white and fluffy have turned dark and grey with the wind: thunderclouds. It is nature's music and nature's story, as we open our books to read the pages that we write, let us also open our hearts, our ears and our eyes to see nature's story unfold and hear the music of the wind.
Have a wonderful weekend, and as always, happy reading :)
