One Acorn

“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

In all my time spent out exploring in nature, I’ve never found an acorn actually sprouting before.  It’s so amazing to see the will and the strength of new life breaking through – especially through such a hard shell, and at a time when everything else around seems to be dying or going dormant.

There’s a metaphor or a life lesson hiding in this somewhere for us…


Nature is so inspiring!


Wishing you inspiration and breakthroughs today…

    The oak tree in our garden was planted by a forgetful squirrel. 🙂
