I bought a Grand Fir seedling last fall and put it in its own pot until next spring where I would repot it somewhere else or keep it there if it hadn't grown enough. This morning after the Puget Sound got 8-12" of snow overnight, if you got close you could hear the sound of Zen meditation, "I am a tree. I am a tree. I really am a tree." and then you heard the faint sound of the song "To everything turn, turn, turn, there is a season..."
Taoism teaches you to be open to the many small things in life, which give you an opportunity to see the world differently and anew. Even a seedling can teach us the power of being.
