I felt the need to drive today. I’m in Washington state and since it’s known for apples, I felt that a drive on Apple Acre Road would be appropriate.
It’s January and the day is cold, but not without beauty. I decided to post photos and write about the conversations I overheard. Always looking for signs of community in my travels, I was surprised to find it in a tiny little orchard tucked in the hills, not far from the Columbia River.
Interesting…whether it be a serpent or an apple, Adam or Eve, man or woman, the beginning of time or the present, the question and answer are the same:
“Would you like to live your life and live it with free will?”
Maybe Elisabeth Kubler Ross was inspired to start the hospice movement by what she saw in an apple orchard.
I was a witness to the apples coming together as a community during the barren season.
He learned how to let go and he was able to bring himself down from (the tree on) the mountain and feed those who could not reach the heavens.
Maybe I made this all up and maybe I didn’t.
