A great experience! Traveling in a world of frustration, personal protest and collecting debris. Trees. Birds. Fire. Survival. Maturation. Discovering the value of people - when the appearance lies and when under the labels we put are actually hidden soul and hearts,as big as the whole forest . Everything that lies beneath the surface of our personalities. It smolders like embers. Until he is awakened to burn to full resurrection! 🍁
