my December is still colorful and sunny…:-)

passing by all the trees standing up, waiting for the winter, I recalled an article I’d read a few days before about a 400-year-old oak from Mississippi – hence this quote:“We don’t talk about trees getting older, we say they are growing. Let’s use the same language for ourselves. We are not getting older, we are growing.”(Sue Fitzmaurice) – well, I totally agree with her statement… 🙂

how is your December, guys?…

en passant devant tous les arbres qui résistent debout, en attendant l’hiver, j’ai pensé à un article que j’avais lu qqs jours auparavant sur un chêne du Mississippi qui a 400 ans, d’où cette citation:“Nous ne disons pas que les arbres prennent de l’âge, mais qu’ils grandissent. Utilisons le même langage pour nous-mêmes: nous ne vieillissons pas, nous grandissons.”(Sue Fitzmaurice) – eh bien, je suis entièrement d’accord avec son affirmation… 🙂

  1. I too, like the growing concept, as long as it is in knowledge and wisdom, not extra inches around my middle. 🙂

  2. I like growing instead of getting older. 😊

  3. Such beauty! ENJOY your December! xxx LOVE and Hugs!

  4. I like that way of thinking.

  5. December is growing well. 🙂

  6. On peut le voir comme ça. Growing. Mais ici ils ont un proverbe:”No es lo mismo Veinte años después que los tres Mosqueteros!” 😉

  7. J’aime plutôt bien les jours ensoleillés et froids. Une petite séance de qigong matinale dans la prairie encore blanche de gelée me va bien. Merci, Mélanie.

  8. Tu as de la chance d’avoir du soleil et des feuilles aux arbres! Je vais tâcher de grandir aussi! Bonne soirée, Mo

  9. We’ve had a few warm sunny days, Melanie. The cold weather hasn’t hit us yet. Today it is very windy and there may be moments of rain.
