I can’t seem to get enough stories about trees. The pictures are beautiful also. I do feel that getting personal with your own favorite tree in your backyard or on a walk is a way to deepen your own relationship and appreciation for not only trees but all of nature. It becomes a magical practice of noticing, of relating and truly embracing a much wider connection. As with all meaningful relationships, there is a deep respect, even a reverence, for such a sacred friendship.
