A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

    Again – you have cheered me! I’m not an old man – but am a woman well into retirement who finds herself limited in ways to contribute to present and future society. It just so happens, planting trees, (a few – but maximum my small lot might handle), is one of those. Fruit trees, in my case – that they might contribute in multiple ways to future earth/life needs. The trees are young, only this summer have they been leafy enough to cast noticeable shade. They seem happy; I have come to think of them as conscious in some way, and also as siblings of one another. (Very lovely art piece also). Thank you.
