The old ugly tree

Life doesn’t go unnoticed – if it’s lived correctly

The old ugly tree has seen much over time – summer drought, autumn storm, winter frost and the unpredictable spring – survived countless attacks from insects, from sheep, from birds, from cattle, from humans – it creaks loudly as soon as the wind whistles around it – the energy off the ground encounter many obstacles in the battered old ugly tree
before it has come up to the foliage and all the fresh – but year after year, so it let the past behind and start on a fresh – when it is confident that now is the season started

no false starts like a lot of other plants and trees – itsn’t impatient as those who can’t wait  but looks if the weather “stay tune”.

Nature (and therefore humans too) often feel threatened by disabilities – especially other people’s handicaps – and in many contexts is age considered as a handicap

 both missing age and too much age

but isn’t life goes right from the start to the very end..?

  1. In Danish we´ve – among so many – a saying:”Every age keeps its own charm!” – Perhaps if the old tree could tell stories from its rings behind the bark, it would be agree.

    By the way the whole scenery (the picture is from Samsoe, I guess) reminds the commentator of a prevoius post on this blog, telling a snapstory about the blog-owners great father……I wonder, why (?) 😉

      Yeah – every age has it’s own charm – agrees – I’ll go further saying that every person has their own champ – but not all knows their own charm or hid it away – either consciously or unconsciously – one could say that charm is not age-related… ‘big smile’

      Yes the photo is from the small danish island of Samso – taken at my Pentecostal visit – the old “general” is not quite as’ scary ‘as the old ugly tree behind my parents’ home… ‘big smile’

      Agrees and charm has nothing to do with age – one’s “look” is not decisive, but more how one perceive oneself – it rubs off on the outside world… 😉

      Yes, beauty has nothing to do with age
      – those who believe it that, they lives in my eyes in a false world … 😉

      Yes, think if “things” could write their memoirs – what amazing stories… 😉

      Yeah – although the tree can’t write or speak, so it can easily tell a great story – often tales is where one look after them… 😉

      Agree, the word “ugly” is a very subjectively word – age and life do something with everything – and it’s not ugly… 😉
