"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky."
"All our wisdom is stored in the trees."
Trees have always held a wonderful fascination to me. I remember starring up at these wonderful giants from walks with my mom at night when we were in Los Angeles, going to meetings we attended,
sometimes in the evening. They graced the streets with their majestic forms and I always felt no matter what, they would always be my protectors. That may seem pretty silly, because trees don't physically move (or maybe they do, as in the Lord of the Rings); yet there is so much I'm learning from these amazing friends. I am a pretty avid hiker and for a while Ami (my Collie) couldn't hike so far, so I decided to hike for a short distance, and take time to meditate in the red rocks, which is also plentiful with beautiful trees. I found that when I asked a question of nature or the trees, I would receive a beautiful insight. It's almost like a whisper on the wind; yet so very real. A designer friend of mine, Carol Haralson, creates for Sojourns publication; she knows my love of trees and sent me the attached PDF of an article dealing with The Hidden Life of Trees, which I hope you will enjoy.
