Today is a typical Monday
I start with a prep session Sunday after the family calls it a night
My Boy Max and I burn some midnight oil
Planning the weeks targets and trying to keep it simple
but guess what?
I ALWAYS bite of more than I can chew
I ALWAYS add a bit too much
always with the best intentions
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo Da Vinci
Then as I glare out at the gents cutting back our trees that surround our home it hits me!
That is IT
In order for that Maple to take a great form, and vitality it must be cut back
No Trimmed- thats a temporary cosmetic fix
Cut Back, as in a bit extreme
Then the proper shape and integrity can we developed
Are we not the same as the tree in the sense that maybe my trimming busy work from my day is not creating a ultimate structure I desire.
Maybe the cuts need to be more rigid
Maybe the harshness makes them matter more
so I will lay out the structure in place for me
It will not be easy
the resistance will make me anxious
It will make me want to bend
thats where we must be firm, I must be FIRM
Since it begins with me thats where I shall start
