Magnolia Tree at Grace Church
I love this Magnolia tree, which I pass often on my way to work. It takes my breath away and makes for a large emotion of pleasure and gratitude. "All beauty is a making one of opposites," Eli Siegel stated "and the making one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves." I think this Magnolia tree is a beautiful oneness of delicacy and strength, dark and light. It's pale, pink petals are delicate and they emerge from dark, strong branches. It is one of my teachers.
