Nature is both interesting and instructive.
While some creatures are born and die only after a single day journey, some live like forever. Olive tree is
one of them. In this sense, each olive tree seems to be mirror to existence. That‘s probably why it‘s been
called the everlasting tree for centuries. The moment you think it will no longer survive, all of a sudden
it gets born out of its ashes, sprouts and brings death back to life.
Resurrection of olive tree is like Prometheus reborn from ashes. A belief, commitment to life to the
fullest, a struggle that shows there are still things in life to sacrifice for…
Believing that each sunrise is a resurrection. Transforming into a light (of angel).
