Folks that aren't from around "these parts" may not be familiar with the unique inhabitants that share our glorious trees here on the Island. Many of us have discovered these special folks upon rising in the morning. You head out the door, and yikes, there's a new "Tree Guy". Although at first they may startle the unwary resident, their eyes tell it all. They are really very warm and reassuring. I have yet to hear them actually speak, but they always seem on the verge of wanting to share with you something deep and profound about the nature of life. Heaven knows, they have ample time to think about such things! And as reclusive as they are, they become rather good friends as you get to know them.
These "tree folk" lead what I would describe as a "contemplative" lifestyle and seem content to simply "be" for the most part. Hmm, a good example I would suggest, to those of us who might occasionally benefit from the wisdom of "Don't just do something, sit there". I would add that they are also very good listeners and appear genuinely interested in our various activities.
