Photo Diary: Change

trees
“Your desire to change is simply a symptom of growing in a certain direction.  You are as naturally flowing in a new direction as a tree putting out a new branch.  In the process of growth, the oak is not better than an acorn.  Because what does it do?  It produces acorns.  So an oak is an acorn’s way of becoming others.” – Alan Watts
