The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think about that. Really think about how deep that is… and then let’s talk about time travel!
Didn’t think I would go there did you? Well, why not?  There’s that question again.

94554_acornIf we traveled back in time to the day that first acorn fell (or worse yet sent a hungry squirrel to that day) and that acorn never existed, those thousands of forests wouldn’t have either!  No oxygen for the world.  No shelter and shade for the forest creatures. No building materials for our log homes… of course we could have lived in teepees but no wood for bows and arrows… of course we could have just stoned our food.  But no wood for fire, raw meat? Yuck!

Of course, the other side of the coin is… if we sent a hungry squirrel back to the day that first acorn fell… where did it fall from?

Welcome to the mind of an author!  If you aren’t a little bit crazy… will you understand the sound a tree makes when it falls, if it never existed in the first place?

    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

    Very handful of internet websites that happen to become comprehensive beneath, from our point of view are undoubtedly very well really worth checking out.
