I love the first, Janet

The second -- Newton's first law of motion says they may hold unless acted upon by an external force....as far as gravity and wind/rain factors work, it has to fall..it cannot hold there for long,

times we realise human beings are so different ---building ties that work life long, yet affording the choice to stay unattached,

I was driving along the highway, through rainbow colored trees when one small orange tree suddenly dropped all its leaves. It was a beautiful moment.

I hope to be inspired by the tree to let go of some of my beautiful attachments.

Thanks for the Newtonion perspective Devika. Gravity is my friend, if I don't work against it :-)

Absolutely agree, Janet :-)
whats nature and natural, shouldn't be worked against...or say its foolish to work against it,

And Janet...missed to say, May be because i don't wish to see bare trees...and may be i don't like to see people left alone and craving for love....

I like both -- trees full of leaves round the year (against nature though...and foolish :))

and people feeling safe, secure and warm in solid relationships...that too doesnt work always :)

wishes,
devika

some part of me understands that non-attachment leads to the most solid of relationships. some part of me doesn't quite know how to do that yet.

it's why I turn to nature for inspiration:-)

I understand that Janet...
nature is what i too turn to when i lose track of myself :)
