Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Hiking through the woods can be a refreshing experience, especially if one stops to look within their environment. Nature shows its loveliness in many ways, including the shadows that show their faces, with each step.
Tree branches and leaves cast tones and images on the ground that can have a beautiful effect through their patterns. It is almost as if an artist has taken a brush, and painted stunning designs with his/her strokes. T
The next time you are in the forest, take a look around you, and appreciate the lovely illuminations of nature.
