Trees are sanctuaries.
Whoever knows how to speak to them,
whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.
They do not preach learning and precepts,
they preach undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

– Hermann Hesse, Wandering

  1. Beautiful images, and I love the quote you selected, Marianne. I have often felt that way about trees, without having the words to say it… There is a real strength in their stillness, and their quiet growth. A faith in life you could say, that is reassuring…


    • Thanks for your comment Michael, I really like it. I’m glad that my post inspired you to find the words to say it. Sorry to reply until today, but I’ve been far away, although I’m back on track. Have a great week! 🙂
