I visited one of my favorite old trees the other day. It lives near a stream that has been too high to cross. This day it was passable.
There is a special delight walking around a tree to appreciate its many perspectives. Like a living nature-sculpture.
And with this mighty-one witnessing it's masterful tree-survivalism.
There was even a friendly white-bearded bark-dwarf who smiled out at me. Being present in nature is a special gift we give our heart and soul. 💚 Peace
