#56- Rooted

The prompt this week -- "Rooted" -- is inspired by the name of Sunday Scribblings participant Gautami Tripathy's blog. It's a wonderful word; I love visual of tree roots sinking deep into the soil -- it's such a great metaphor for our connection to our land or culture. Write about your roots, or your rootlessness perhaps?

I have two contributions to your rooted theme.
1. The first is about my sense of having no roots. It is called "Freefalling" and you can finds it at http://image-verse.com/freefalling

2. The second is a tribute to a giant redwood that has come urooted. It is called "Life Goes On" and it's found at http://image-verse.com/life-goes-on
