I have an opportunity for personal growth but how to go about it? Like most things deep observation requires training and practise. Sometimes things just fall into your lap. Like Loose and Leafy's
Tree Following project.
choose a tree and see what it does:
when its leaves appear and when they fall
which twigs grow and which fall off
if it has seeds
and if any germinate and grow into new trees
what its bark looks like - when it's wet and when it's dry
whether anything grows on it - like lichen
whether creatures sit on - insects, birds, butterflies
what plants grow round it and what they do too.
