Wood has a delightful enthusiastic spirit; it dares to grow and grants the energy of youth and the buoyancy of adolescence: Wood is the faithful promise of Spring. In that, it marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Mirror, mirror: The Hebrew calendar also celebrates the Birthday of Trees (Tu B'Shevat) as the coming of the Spring and time of renewal. That we are One is elemental!
