Karla's Korner: Be the Tree

Karla's Korner: Be the Tree Be the Tree…. On a recent late spring afternoon I sat quietly under an old oak tree in my back yard. Our yard is full of little critters scurrying about building their nests, feeding new babies and on occasion playing in the trees. As I sat in the stillness of the afternoon I noticed a tiny tree poking through the lava rocks surround the deck steps.
