THE ENCHANTED LIFE
Anyhow, I am finally able to get outside and walk about a bit. The apple orchard is in all of it's glory at the moment. There's something so calming about an old orchard with bent and lichen-spotted trees. A connection to the past. Always reminds me of this quote:
We plant trees not for ourselves, but for future generations.
-- Caecilius Statius
Martin Luther said if he knew he had only one day left to live he would plant a tree. Makes my answer about eating cake seem pretty shallow! But then, I could never hope to be as virtuous as Mr. Luther.
