My parents used to tell me, go far, venture out, don't stay back. I took their advice to heart and together with a lot of other problems, decided to leave the nest. The branches from this sycamore tells an important message: no matter how far you stretch out, you are still connected to that main trunk.
Parents: let go, wind and rain beat on the branches only made them stronger, you cannot hang on to them or shield them forever. Learn and let learn.
Yourself: Go far, yes, (if that's what you want) but remember no matter how far you stretch, be grateful for the love and support.
