In 1937, Albert Einstein stated that "All religions, arts, and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom. They seek to fulfill this great task by spreading moral and cultural understanding, renouncing the use of brute force." I used that quote on this, my first Facebook cover photo on my new FB Timeline. The photo of an oak forest, focusing on one tree with a beautiful curving branch, seemed like a perfect illustration for the branch in Einstein's quote. The photo was taken at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.
