Here is a lovely sentiment I happened to bump into (randomness, serendipity or just rubbing two things together can sometimes be our most creative tools)
“When I grow the tree from seed or from cutting, when I nurse the tree from a sapling, when I eat of its fruit and sleep in its shade, when I watch it grow year by year, then I discover that a spirit inhabits the dance of its branches.”
By Jeremy Luke Hill. You can find his blog and the source of this quote here.
Imagine a city full of such trees, neighborhoods alive with such spirits, and people filled with such vision.
