"Desire fulfilled is a tree of life".

I have many 'trees of life' that I am thankful for. I am big on symbols, so when I read this verse, I began to reflect on the many desires in my life that have been fulfilled. I began to see this as a great reflection on gratitude and a creative adventure. So, I am doing something a little different. I am connecting a timeline to my inspiration. My goal is to create a different tree of life every month for a year. Each piece will be different in size and composition, and reflect a personal connection to a desire fulfilled. My love of trees will definitely help here. When the year is up, I will have a forest on my wall, a reminder of the gratitude I feel for the 'desires fulfilled' in my life.

Stay posted to watch the forest unfold!
