offers insights
into where to go,
as it is a way
to know where 
you are now

Knowing where
is relative to
human constructs
of places built,
for moments
for reasons
to walk, to meet

The words of place
are layered
in understanding
for the conversations,
otherwise, another
conversation is required

NatureThe Tree of Life: The guáimaro tree is a keystone species of Colombia’s tropical dry forest – a keystone both culturally and ecologically as this Mongabay article explains. It is a good example of the regenerative intersectionality of a variety of solutions to pressing challenges. It is a native tree that grows a perennial crop of nuts which provide a nutritious staple food source for local traditional and Indigenous communities, including its use as flour. It is produced by centuries-old agroforestry practices and harvested by a campesino collective of smallholder farms who are also exploring its potential to establish a larger bioeconomy for the region. The trees grow in a highly endangered ecosystem, threatened by deforestation, and need the protection provided by local communities. The trees provide shelter for animals and their roots stabilize streambanks. It’s no wonder this ‘Tree of Life’ is the focus of an annual celebration! https://lifeandsoulmagazine.com/2018/03/21/the-once-extinct-magical-tree-guaimaro-slowly-coming-back-to-life-in-latin-america/
NatureIndigenous Leadership Protects Forests: A new study focused on Brazil's Atlantic Forest, much further degraded than the Amazon but less publicized, showed definitive evidence of improved tree cover after tribes were granted official title to their territories. There is a growing body of evidence to support the role of Indigenous leadership in long-term biodiversity conservation. One strategy that has been building momentum globally is the movement to preserve natural landscapes by granting them direct legal rights. In recent years, many rivers have been granted personhood, protecting them from obstruction and pollution and giving them the right to sue. https://insideclimatenews.org/news/06022023/brazil-atlantic-forest-indigenous-communities-deforestation/
NatureProtecting Ecuador’s Cloud Forest: An article released earlier this month highlights grassroots conservation in Ecuador’s threatened cloud forest including regenerative agriculture, restoration, female empowerment, and anti-mining protests. These biodiversity hotspots house ⅙ of the world’s plant species, and animals from spectacled bears, to puma, to a number of endemic amphibians, but their proximity to mining operations has threatened Ecuador’s largely degraded cloud forests for decades. Defensa y Conservación Ecológica de Intag (DECOIN) has been supporting this regenerative work for the past 28 years. They are guided by their ecosystems: from women-owned natural materials co-op, to natural restoration practices which include planting over 75,000 native trees since the 2000s, to supporting organic coffee farms in the region. They currently steward 12,000 acres of land against mining threats, creating a wellspring of opportunities for the many species sharing their vibrant landscape. https://news.mongabay.com/2023/01/in-ecuador-communities-protecting-a-terrestrial-coral-reef-face-a-mining-giant/

Freedom is about thoughts, when spoken, that guide living via what we be-have-do. I appreciate the times in which I live. I celebrate my life.
My movement is best understood by packing the items in my day pack that make sense to walk with.
Of knowing what matters in living your life, it's then, the wellthy-wealthy decisions make sense for you and those you involve to experience the extraordinary
Words like "bridge" and "light" are words to explain being-having-doing. Is that the case for you? Or do you use other words like?

Remember - they are free writing, including use of unfamiliar words
and, there might be some (w)holes in them ))smiles 

Simplicity of living is the gratitude felt and expressed for what is in front of you. There is no lack of. Because you are here.

NOW... OWN ... WON... might there be a message here for you?

Trees are the educators of children as they are the educators of adults - when you care to listen and learn, then share and educate. A grove trees, and trees as a forest are places where your awareness grows about the possibilities of living an extraordinary life, creating well-living workplaces, and eco-creating the wealthy wellthy world.
