Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: “Tree of Life of our Journeys. Parents of today are confronted by their children or children of other parents with a statement: I AM BORED and really don’t know how to answer that comment today. To answer our children there’s a symbol of a tree I thought many years ago. Everyone in life begins from the bottom of the tree and branches of the tree represent discoveries we make in our lives. When children get bored tell them this message that, You have discovered everything about that branch that represent friends, places you went, or subjects spoken … tell the child return to the tree trunk and take another branch you to discover and continue that until you get to the top and share those teachings learnt to other people around you when you’re a grandparent and become a teacher.” – James Simon Mishibinijima
