Humble Alder

 Tree Wisdom Cards ~ Alder

"You Are Enough". I've seldom found that to be so, I'm often my own worst enemy. Yet a little research shows me a lot of our everyday furniture is alder based, and black alder bark has been used for centuries, it contains the anti-inflammatory salicin, which is metabolized into salicylic acid in the body. Big timber men think of alder as junk wood, but it is a backbone of the industry. 

So yes, I can see myself as alder, the backbone of my humble selfness. I've always known I'm no Sequoia... but I'm enough. 


  1. Wonder who ever got us to believe that we needed to be more than?

  2. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to figure that out.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
