The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

From One Comes Many

"Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong." - Winston Churchill

This redwood tree is made up of many separate trees growing from one source.


  1. In dimension not so different from the red sequoia's also standing in california. 10 persons to encircle the stem with their hands together or is that not the case here?

  2. if humans could only figure that one out.

  3. beautiful tree; would be lovely to stand close like you did. Trees look better as they age ............

  4. That tree knows the meaning of working together.

  5. What a find!
