Rooted, but not standing still

Rooted, but not standing still.....
As I am tempted by the nearby orchards all beckoning me to come and pick apples a few things come to mind.  First the smell in the kitchen when I have the dehydraters filled with cut apples and the crockpot filled with homemade applebutter.  But second is the tree itself and what the familiar site can come to mean.
Our family just yesterday continued a tradition.  We planted a redbud tree in our yard.   You see we have planted a redbud at each house we have ever lived in (this one makes the 3rd).  It is truly something to return again, years later and see how it has grown.  It is also very meaningful to know that you have started something that will carry on and help provide shade on a hot day, beauty in the spring, and fresh oxygen to help make up for my families carbon footprint.  It is very grounding.
But this is also about not standing still.  Just because we are rooted, in traditions, in our small community, it doesn't mean that we aren't going somewhere, growing, evolving.  Just like us opening our General Store, the small community of Davis is growing.  The few houses that were looking for people to move in are now full and there are new members of the "family".  It is a wonderful feeling to know that we can continue to move forward even though we have roots.  And in the meantime, I will enjoy the tasty smells in my kitchen.

Wow! Such a covincidence we have a simular tradition to plant Sakura tree in our garden. However, we are doing it only after some remarkable events in life of our family. We recently planted two of them, one was in hail of my brother wedding. Second one was planted in hail of my second son birth. If you think that we should have already a nice beautiful garden full of gorgeous sakura. You are totally right we have 23 of them now.

What a wonderful writing. It is really very meaningful to us that you provide shade on a hot day, beauty in the spring, and fresh oxygen to help make up for my families carbon footprint.

Living in a big house with orchards all around has been my dream from my childhood but for now, I have to live in a flaty in the most crowded neighborhood of New York

For me, rooted - means that you are stable, not that you are boring or not perspective. It means the feeling of peace and mindfullness.
