"Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life."

- Krishnamurti -
Nature, with Her changing seasons,  provides us many revelations; sometimes they are hidden, so subtle that we do not see, and other times they can be very much apparent and out in the open.  And, just as the 
seasons of the year change, so does the seasons of our lives.  Life is a wonderful journey, and as we travel through, we will experience many seasons.  Some will be difficult, others will be quite easy.  Some will be seasons of sorrow while others will be seasons of joy.  Every season should be treasured, whether it holds joyous moments or difficult trials, for each season of our lives is a precious gift.


  1. I tried to read one of Krishnamurti's books once. It was complete gibberish to me. Never tried to read another.

  2. Our oak tree in the front yard is so pretty naked in the fall against the full moon, just gorgeous. You are so right, treasure every season of our lives, there is always something to be learned from each season. Enjoy every season....
    love you!
