The word “tree” seems inadequate to the task of containing all of these. The image of a tree painted in your mind may be very different from the image in my mind. How can we be sure we are talking about the same thing? Or is it sometimes less important that our ideas match and more important that we each carry our own?

In your plans for today, how can you be aware of the picture, in your mind or someone else’s, that grows out of a single word?

What color did you notice right away in this picture? Were your eyes drawn to the smooth shapes or the rough edges, the larger stones or the small ones? How long did it take for additional colors and patterns to emerge for you?

In your plans for today, how can you open yourself to be aware of more of the colors and textures around you?

How far away that rose bud must have seemed when the ladybug was at its base, ready to start climbing. When you take on something difficult, do you focus on the challenge of the journey or the sweet reward at the end?

What plans do you have today that will help you and others around you to take on the challenge and move toward the reward?

Where is your place of shelter? Take a moment to think about what shelter means for you. How do you make sure you can always find your way back to that place?

What do you do when your place of shelter is no longer safe? When is it more dangerous to stay sheltered than to venture out?

How can your plans for today help someone else to find and appreciate their own place of shelter?
