Statement: A tree in winter is transformed and laid bare by unstoppable changes. At that time, there is no hiding its imperfections from all who look upon it, but the tree is not ashamed of its translucence, for it knows full well of the transformation and beauty taking place within, soon to reveal on the outside.
Statement: We have all fallen victim to acts of abandonment imposed upon us in one form or another. The question is, how do we disentangle ourselves from the impact of these restraints? Unlike this tree, we are able to make a conscious effort to loosen ourselves from these bonds and to continue the journey of our purpose.
