A huge tree is a symbol of wisdom. It is firmly rooted in the earth for centuries imbibing the nutrients of the soil much like scholars store the wisdom of the ages. It has withstood time and the calamities that came its way, much science has withstood the shifts of paradigms through the centuries. It continually spreads out its wings reaching out to where the sun is, always seeking enlightenment as scholars do. A tree stands on top of the earth, gazing forward and backward, looking east and west. It is for all to see and to share in its bounty of the fruit of knowledge. There is no better emblem for a journal than a tree, as a depository of knowledge and wisdom and its relentless quest for what is new.
