Thursday 24 March 2011: Tranquility
The bamboo is the most popular plant in China. Every village in Southern China is surrounded by bamboo groves. To be Chinese is to feel at home with bamboo. The drooping bamboo leaves cross one another, as if they are composing the Chinese character "An" (tranquility). For the wandering traveler writing letters back home, to include a bamboo leaf is to say, "I am fine, I hope that everyone in the family is enjoying peace.
Found one meaning of this (the above)---we need to plant a WHOLE bunch more bamboo in our world! My wish tonight if for PEACE. xoxoC
