The Tree of Life

Someday, we'll fall down and weep and we'll understand it all. All things.

BC regular Fintan has photographed a tribute attached to a sapling in Hilly Fields, possibly serving as a remembrance tree. It bears the message:

One who sees God in everything is always in awe.
Their whole life becomes a form of prayer a song of praise.

If you know the story behind the tree and would like to share it, please let us know.

Nice sentiment but no need to mention God.

You can use the word to invoke all sorts of cuddly emotions and not believe in God, and that's from me a happy atheist. It would be a bleak world if you're going to demote any poetry or prose with a religious sentiment.

Furthermore we have no idea why that verse was attached to the tree so perhaps hanging back on the fevered debate until we do would be appropriate.

@MB - 100% agree

Beautiful and poetic, but can anyone just plant a tree in Hilly Fields? Is it some sort of free for all.
