Went for a walk in the Muir Woods National Monument last week.  Those old growth redwood trees, many of which have been around for 2000 years, never let me down. My visits there are always sooo uplifting – humbling too.

This time though, I “got” the humbling part.

We humans would probably agree that (by at least two important criteria ) a successful life would be one which comprises special stature and longevity. Measured by that standard these ancient giants are arguably the most successful life form on the planet – and all without the benefit of a brain!! Humbling, no?

Take care of yourself,
