“The trees are whispering to me, reminding me of my roots, and my reach... shhhhhh... can you hear them? Selflessly sharing their subtle song.”
On our walk today, Olive and I stopped to admire one of the birch trees that stands near Walker Pond. Well, I stopped and because her leash attaches her to me, she stopped too.
I love stopping and touching birches. They have such a wonderful chalky texture. Olive probably thinks I’m a nut or some kind of tree hugger or something but now and then I just have to do it. I have to stop and closely contemplate a birch tree. I am not sure if there is a more beautiful natural thing on earth.
