We had a family hike into Vancouver Island's Avatar Grove the other day.
Trees calm. They ground.
They are a lesson in strength and patience.
They represent the immense power of a living thing that is willing and able to contribute to the well-being of ALL living things by the conversion of sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into oxygen.
Poet Rabindraneth Tagore wrote, “trees are earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.”
They inspire. They reflect hopefulness, and the willingness to endure.
And here, on VI, they can be really big! :)
