Roots On A Rock

A final image from the Hocking Hills. So, the seed germinated in the crevice of this sandstone outcrop, which is a pretty dry and impervious place to be. Hard to get a grip on things. But the roots kept growing in a geotropic manner, i.e. down, and eventually found some soil. A reliable source of nutrients and water. And growth continues, and new leaves are produced in the spring and they fall off in the autumn, and flowers are produced, and pollinated, and fruits are formed - just like all the other trees in the forest. Powerful teaching here on equanimity.
