It is truly amazing that we share the world with such magnificent tree-beings.
Beauty. Power. Presence. Incalculable purpose.
Please do what you can to protect and preserve the natural world!
I am deeply grateful having the opportunity to meet these tree-beings in my 'backyard'. Even though I have done a lot of hiking and camping as an adult I have not spent this kind of time 'meeting' the trees I encountered.
As a kid I loved to play in the woods across the street from where I lived. I used to think the trees told me stories then. There were Indian maidens, star crossed lovers, and stories about many different family dynamics No doubt I was trying to work out some of the things happening in my own home.
Things I never talked about. Things I didn't even know how to begin talking about. For a long, long time.
