Tree Stories 2519 is about the importance of networks ... think a bee pollinating a plant and a plant providing food to the bee
The video to the right explains & describes ecological networks ... it's a great overview of the concept of "network"
Of importance to understanding "network" are the concepts and practices of living - laughing - listening - leading - loving in interconnectedness - living in interrelationships.
Trees live in interrelationships with each other and other species (e.g., forests) - with other plants (e.g., agroforestry) - water cycle (e.g., swamp, drought, flooding) ... and so on.
Just as tree stories interrelate with one another and with other elements of the earth ... the myth-based stories (a starting link))smiles
Adding More Perspective
The sixth ecoliteracy tenet in the series of seven is "network" ...
Network - group of interconnected things ... sharing something
Think "net" and "work" - what comes to mind?
A network of people ... a network of computers ... a network of roads ... a network of trees communicating with one another ... and so -->
And Now, Personally
Consider you ----- you live in a web of life ...
In a network ...
If you were the hub ... and drew lines out from you to others (the links) ... you would be drawing a network of personal relationships
At the time of drawing this map - you could be considered the centre
However, by outcome - a network has no centre because all elements of the network play a role - share information - all making contributions
As an Entrepreneur
I found this article (pdf) from a blog connecting "ecosystem - networking - serving" ... a follow-up reference is in the pdf. Offers another perspective:
Grandparents and Networks
And so ... where and when might you encounter different illustrations of nature (and living life) highlighting networks with or without your involvement:
- bees and plants (each are nodes - and the adjoining line = link; therefore can share the story of the nodes and the links)
- streams, rivers, oceans
- predator and prey cycles
- family network
- computer/phone/laptop and Internet
- wildfires, air quality, health & wellness
- you - computer - Internet - your friend's computer - your friend
And, your suggestion is: ______________
Moving into Education Suggestions
Like cycles and flow, look for ways to appreciate network (ecological network) in your life - at work - when volunteering - your health & wellness - when playing and recreating ...
Look for the "meaningful pattern recognition"
- When you see a pattern - you can recognize it - and give it meaning.
- When you seek to understand something (give it meaning) - can you discern a recognizable pattern?
- Where you see a pattern - what meaning do you assign it in case you see it again or want to replicate it?
- Another of your creation ____________
Educating - Learning Cycle
If you have a deeper interest in your experience of "network" - consider learning about the Educating-Learning Cycles ... Reference: Types
And if you were to explain the learning cycle
while exploring/discovering a topic
about NETWORK in nature, because of nature,
your artful representation of nature ...
Consider how deep and rich the experience of learning (the process)
and the subsequent retention/use of the learning (the takeaways) could be ...
From my head, heart, and hands ...
Value your network
Value the net you cast
Value the work you do with others
Value the contribution of trees in your network
Value the contribution you make to the network of trees that surrounds you
