The Family Tree

In the spring of a different time, beauty and uncertainty gave birth to creativity and generosity. As time passed, the sisters succumbed to the environmental effects of storms and drought. Their good nature changed a bit. Creativity flourished for a while until the influences of competition and insecurity took over. Generosity became angry when fear and loss came knocking. New seasons brought new challenges. Survival of the fittest was the rule. Creativity spread her wings and flew abroad; but could not escape the fear and indifference that followed her. Generosity lost sight of herself with the sadness and frustration that surrounded her. In the midst of the coldest season, a bright bud appeared for each of them. To creativity was born a graceful and wise sprout. For generosity, kindness and intelligence bloomed. The tree continues to weather the changes of seasons and passage of time. The leaves have withered somewhat; but the roots remain strong.
