#5 Tree Rings of Life -Memory Palace of Trees



We continue the tree stories on video for the “Memory Palace of Trees”.

Wang Ligeng takes us to Fragrant Hills and ponders over the idea of Tree Rings and growth. 







The core contains childhood,

and beyond that are the juvenile years,

and beyond that is the phase of youth.

From being taken care of  as a child provided with comfort and. affection,

to having a  magical and  carefree life ,

from being playful, to the phase of taking responsibility.

The growth rings of a person and a tree are similar

And must be developed in circles from inside outwards .  

This is the white-bark pine of Fragrant Hills,

I just feel at ease at the moment.

There is real interest here,

I had forgotten to recognize this.


Many Thanks to Wang Ligeng for this tree story .
