A Quotation for Monday

"Of winter's lifeless world, each tree now seems a perfect part; yet each one holds summer's secret deep down within its heart."  Charles G. Slater

  1. Oh yes, trees keep and hold secrets deep within. These silent sentinels that stand witness to the world around them.
    The sap-blood that runs through their roots, inner bark and leaf veins hold decades (some even centuries) of unspoken mysteries.

    That's why it hurts to see these old souls, forests of the ancients, cut down.

  2. I like to stand by trees, sometimes, and just think about what they've witnessed. Some of the oldest trees in this forest were saplings in the early 16th century...just imagine what they could tell us!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
