Oak and Palm

Was what I had originally intended to use as a blog title, but I didn’t want it to sound as if I was peddling corned beef. (“Olive and Palm” was my next choice, but that didn’t sound very enticing, either. Oils anyone?)

The majestic oak tree was and still is a very important symbol to many European peoples. It is commonly associated with the Thunder God.
The palm tree is a symbol of fertility and life for many civilisations in Asia. In the Philippines, it is known as the Tree of Life.

To state the obvious, I have chosen these two trees to represent the two ancestral cultures that make up my religion and spirituality.
