Little Red Wagon

“My thoughts turn to something I read once, something the Zen Buddhists believe. They say that an oak tree is brought into creation by two forces at the same time. Obviously, there is the acorn from which it all begins, the seed which holds all the promise and potential, which grows into a tree. Everybody can see that. But only a few can recognize that there is anther force operating here as well-the future tree itself, which wants so badly to exist that it pulls the acorn into being, drawing the seedling forth with longing out of the void, guiding the evolution from nothingness to maturity. In this respect, say the Zens, it is the oak tree that creates the very acorn from which it was born.”

How precious!
Either that's a miniature wagon,
or very large acorns!
Great still life!
LOVE acorns in any shape, form or size!
You know what they say,
about acorns not falling far from the tree!
Happy Fall to YOU and your precious family.
Luv, Antoinette

Such a cute little wagon. The quote really makes me stop and think about how I create my own world.

Seems to be many acorns falling this season, I'm hoping it's not a sign of a rough winter ahead! What a sweet little wagon this is and I hope to see many more seasonal captures of it! I can just picture this filled with lovely greens at Christmas time...maybe some pine cones too :)
