If you want some perspective on your place in the world, go stand in the redwoods. Lean against bark that has stood steadfast through hundreds of years . . . through war, pandemic, drought . . . and yet still remains. We would all do well to follow the redwood’s example; to root down deep and find our strength. We are less than a grain of sand in the big scheme of things, yet we tend to dwell on our problems and challenges as though the world revolves around us. This time in history will one day be a memory—just another ring in these massive trunks marking 2020.
