"I tried once to open too many doors at a time, it was unproductive and confusing.
I just learned the last lesson, Dad. I'm supposed to open just one at a time, and only when I reach them along the path, this 'hike' we are taking. That's when the key fits, and opens the lock perfectly, every time. Thank you, Dad. I love you, and miss you. I am blessed with an amazing husband now, he holds my hand as we walk along paths too. We are climbing a little steeper now, with more effort, and thinner air. But I'm not worried. I am looking up. I am living in the moment, being now. Because when we get to the next door, along our path, I know, Dad, . . . that key is going to fit, perfectly!"

I took a break as a new Rawtarian to plant some seeds in lieu of consuming them! The beautiful Ficus Religiosa you see to the left was a welcome gift from my oldest brilliant banker daughter years ago. She was right on the $ to pick out this tree! I can't hurt it! Now 'mama' Ficus Religiosa, the sacred fig, will be watching over the bonsai nursery. In addition to a new batch of her same genus; Casuarina cunninghamiana seedlings are tucked in their new soil bed next door! This is the she-oak of the evergreen species sporting red flowers and grey-green needles.

Indulging in a Florida native, a Cornus Florida or Flowering Dogwood is set to go as well!

There is something very humbling in planting a tree seed. Though the Dogwood seeds seemed an oval pea size, the others were nearly detectable! Fragile finds to forest floor ~ then oxygenating, how could we not love trees? With care, these trees may humble to share a small cultured place. I look forward to the process, certain their growth will teach me as well.

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself."
~William Blake
