Just like this ancient Juniper Tree, this is what happens to us as we age. We start to get a little bit bent over and some of us get twisted with arthritis or other health issues. Yet another spectacular example of nature’s beautiful artwork, this tree has withstood many years. That being said, if it had a brain, it would be full of incredible wisdom, just like our elders, due to a lifetime of experiences. Bent over and twisted, it survives, just as some of us do, despite the problems we may have with age. In reality, what really matters is what’s inside. That’s what makes this tree so beautiful, just like bent over and twisted people, who carry their beauty ever so gracefully in their heart and souls wherever they may go.
