“We never fully move on,
We leave a piece of ourselves behind
Like leaves and trunks molded into the earth
And forest floor, we give what we know
And others take it up and use it to grow.
I stand under the shade of giants.”
― Eric Overby, Legacy
This photo was taken a few months ago by my daughter Ayla who gave me permission to share it. She has become the family historian working to discover the branches of her family tree. The tree in her photo lives on a hill near Hanging Rock State Park in the foothills of North Carolina.
Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thakur on the second and fourth Thursdays.
For more tree love visit Paurl at Happiness and Food.
