In the Book of Genesis the Tree of Life is a tree whose fruit gives everlasting life. In the legends of the Norse, from the ash tree Yggdrasil pours a spring of knowledge. In Jack and the Bean Stalk the stalk is a ladder to another world where one can gain great riches. Indeed, rooted deep in mythologies from around the globe the tree is the bridge between earthly death and heavenly immortality and wisdom. Always the tree searches with its roots for the nurturing gifts of water and earth. Its many branches reach toward the expansive sky in a chorus of pleas for light.
