Fallen Giant

As we followed the shoreline at the beach in Santa Barbara, we chanced across several large trees that had toppled from the cliffs above. These trees were a poignant reminder that anyone can fall.

Just recently, I was reminded that we are called human beings and that the word “human” is epistemologically related to the word, “humus,” which is Latin for “earth.” We are fashioned from the earth. Humus is also the word from which come the words “humble” and “humility.” It is wise for us to always remember to live humbly and “close to the earth.”
