The wisdom of trees has long been written about. You can find this wisdom in the works of the literary trifecta of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Mary Oliver and John Muir — works that leave us loftily moved about life and leadership.
Wisdom directly from a tree is just as illuminating.
These words are from “Advice from a Tree” written by Writer-Artist-Imagineer, Ilan Shamir.
Inspired, I took my pen (that is, keyboard) to create an homage to Ilan Shamir and to a well-loved large squash — because nature, being abundant, doesn’t restrict wisdom to trees.
A Pumpkin’s Message
Sometimes there is a mask carved on our outsides, put there for protection. I say to you: “Shine brightly through that mask.”
Be the authentic you and #leadfromwithin — be willing to lead not just yourself, but others, too.
