Trees by 10

As markers of here,
between ere and there

As story-sharers
of liberty, of history

As boundary pointers
of location deeds

As memory makers
of rootedness fair

As photographic stills
indicators of growing

As wood stones of
persons who transitioned

As commemoration
of something celebrated

As holders of messages
a display of disgust or wishes

As umbrellas of shade
for hot day respite

As reminders in cities
of the distant wild woods

__Acknowledge The Language
of Trees, pg 173 for muse

Crocus Alberta May 2023
Legacy signature Stephen Hobbs

Alternatively, from
the comfort of a chair,
imagine reading
this poem as you sit
with an a landscape,
a plant you choose!

Video: "Walking With a Landscape" with Walter (Water) Hibbot, who shares some AI trees with music...
"Awarests1 (and the books that follow) are intended for eco-agers (olders to be elders who are walking with nature) and those living a solo-aging lifestyle who see trees and forests as a landscape for their legacy projects and contributions...
That written --- there are grandparents who could benefit from the book... to source ideas about ""older to be elder"" stories with activities, to encourage their grandchildren's involvement with trees and forests (including the parents of the kids))smiles

Katie Holten "The Language of #Trees"
"With Thanks! A #Treemendous Book, #Treefully Crafted, With Branches Of Considerations. ))smiles

--- Yes, I enjoyed this book. Wrote wonderful poetry to remind myself of key insights.
Have a few places to visit to learn more.
And here is to the Ki of tree (Robin Wall Kimmerer),
the Kin of the forest trees, and
the #kindness we can all learn for today's adventures.

Springtime - warmer day - each crocus was blooming ... a distant shot, moving in, almost climbing in ... enjoy #awarests


What are your (re)source protocols? . . .as you step | stride & move toward with the quality of experiences you require & request for learning-knowing-sharing
A tad technical this #fridaymorning - yet, important to #experience the #extraordinary #legacy #nature #wellth #movement
The path of your legacy contribution is a confusing matter. When designed in your words, because you think it is useful, you receive little response. Another designed in their words, you discover it does not light your path. Now what?
#Thinking outloud this morning ... after writing into the journal and going for a walk with the dog. #thursdayvibes
When someone asks me what I do - I share: Writer as Educator; Fully Human Mapper; Nature-Aware Navigator; Experience Celebrant; Legacy Weaver --- the response, "that's nice!" or "what else have you got?"
How Mentoring Supports the Mentee's Mental Health https://youtube.com/live/hrADts6NTcg Request made//Question asked: Explain why mentoring is helpful to a mentee when dealing with mental health issues
OF the gifts you have, OF the gifts you share, OF the connections both of these gifts excite, "Are you living life with an expression of hope and gratitude, with a seasoning of humor while gifting?"
Bring Your Uniqueness to Work - Perspective from the 10 characteristics of the "Well-Living Organization" #organization #actoforganizing #workplace #Legacy

On the "To Do" list, what transition is required on the "To Have" list for reasons of unfolding the "To Be" list? Today "Simplicity for a Berating World!"
Of a feeling that presents ... explore, walk, write, draw, photograph this essence arising. Let this Ki, Qi, Dao, Nwyfre, Life Energy flow with you.
The choice of movement; your decision to move. ........... .are about everyday occurrences while living life when & where your decisions experience the extraordinary
With #Sunday movement, your #decisions are met by your #experience of the #extraordinary - mine today was seeing the great blue #heron standing tall in the creek as I walked to the river and back! #nature #legacy #wellth
Dream - Design - Develop - Deliver - Determine makes a difference to the persons receiving your words-products-processes. As you walk with nature, consider the same insight as you listen to the whispers from the trees.

For getting the movement I request, it often means forgetting some of the causes of the movement. Even the space between words makes a movemental difference.
What value do you assign your intention? Expressions of intention include mission with others, purpose for self, and vision shared. These expressions encompass the values of truth, worth, & utility
Use Network Management for the Well-Living Organization #3 of 10 considerations... When you are living your #legacy in the #workplace... https://wellthmovement.com/legacy-well-living-organization
In the movement you encourage, it frames your continuum of capabilities through capacity. In between them & together, and for reasons beyond are culture with others, context for self, & competence & continuance shared.
The perspective of experience you gained, does it mean you can-will-did share a point of view based on that perspective? Worth asking - because the answers forecast significance.
Your experience is a two sided coin. The experience you unfold becomes an experience others enfold. You walk with others. Your POV from experiences is an expression of sharing
#Experience the extraordinary --- walk with #Nature --- for self and with others --- spend your experience with wellthy intentions --- enjoy being natural! #legacy #soloaging
Growth is a mix of Improve, Focus, and Strengthen. These frame IFS, the push and pull IFS of learning-knowing-sharing. Also, these IFS remind you of your Imagined FutureS!
To improve, focus, and strengthen - a daily occurrence --- often one in front of the other two --- and, sometimes in pairs, and occasionally all three. It's a wonderful day as they unfold - and now, their possible application to #EarthDay2023 #Saturday #onwoard!
Common sense - common ground - are ways of finding commoness and unity, and action together = communication
Background insights about "communication" - an outcome so required for the days ahead - TU for reading #friday #communication #commonsense #legacy #soloaging #actionist
From my lived experience I realize "adeption" --- to be adept at adopt & adapt ... do I adopt the best practice as is & mentor; do I adapt my mentor experience to create a wise practice & continue; or does adopt lead to adapt that leads to... ah, the story of "adeption" unfolding ((Retweet message))
