The roots of this tree spread out to gather water, hold the ground, and anchor and sustain the tree. During these Covid days, we, like the trees in winter, have turned inward. It is a chance to nourish our roots. Many of the things that normally sustain us—family, friends, community—are not so easy to access, or at least not in ways that we are accustomed to. It is like a time of drought—our roots and emotions are often closer to the surface.
