Have you ever talked with trees? Or at least tried to listen to them?
I know it sounds silly but, if you sit next to them and carefully listen to the sound that their leaves make in the breeze, they surely have a lot to say. They can tell you that they are home to many little creatures, many insects, birds, squirrels...
Some trees are young, some are many years old, and their deep and intricate roots have humbly anchored them to the ground for hundreds of years. They have a tranquil, reassuring power, and a welcoming and wise look.
Every morning, while I cycle in the park, they whisper to me that they are here to take care of us and the many creatures that they shelter and feed ☺️
