Regeneration

The summer storms brought down several trees in our neighborhood. This one is still holding on to life, tho! The trunk is split, and has been for several weeks, and yet the leaves are still flourishing and green. At some point, the fracture will weaken and kill the tree, unless the fallen part is cut away.
From time to time, we all expend energy giving life to useless and/or destructive habits or thought patterns or relationships, just like this tree.
I think some time for meditation and reflection on my goals and dreams and priorities, combined with a bit of pruning, is in order this month!
