A Celebration of the Unique

Somewhere in the western region of Poland, lies a section of the forest where the trees bend at a 90 degree angle just near the base of the tree.  And they all bend in a northerly direction.  This section of the forest is relatively small....about 400 trees.  No scientist has an explanation of why this small group of trees have grown this way yet all the trees surrounding this section have grown straight up, as usual.  But I think it is as beautiful as it is unusual.

The 'Crooked Forest' has a place on this Earth.  The thought that comes to my mind is: it is perfectly okay to be unique...to be different....your uniqueness should be embraced and enjoyed.  There are so many people in the world who loathe people and traits that are different from their own.  Fear is probably at the root cause.  They cannot see the beauty.   They cannot understand the 'How' or the 'Why' for the differences.  So, they criticize and condemn the uniqueness.  That's sad.  Because by closing yourself off to the more unique and different aspects of life, just look at what you might be missing?!  A forest of curvy tree trunks....

I dream of a more tolerant world...a world where we at least try to see the beauty and unique visions surrounding us.

Those trees are unique and beautiful. How true, we should all be tolerant of each others differences.

Always a simple explanation-just after the war, escaped circus elephants walked around there flattening the very young seedlings.:-)
