Discovery (front & back views)


You've heard the phrase before, but have you ever taken a moment out of your day to do this? Although some trees, like people, are more huggable than others, they all need a hug now and again.
Here's How:

Find yourself a quiet park, forest, or woodland area.
Walk among the trees until you feel comfortable in their presence.
Feel the different bark textures with the palms of your hands.
Smell the scent of the various woods.
Absorb their life's energies as you look upwards to the sprawling branches overhead.
Find the perfect tree that fits your mood. You will know which one is right for you.
Feel free to hug more than one tree if the mood strikes. Besides, other trees might get jealous.
You may like to take home a fallen leaf or nut as a keepsake from your new friend.
Be sure to return each season to visit your tree. And don't be afraid to talk to it as trees are good listeners.

Eu văd acolo întreg regnul animal. Plante, mamifere, insecte, nevertebrate... Odă atelierului viu al creaţiei. Credinţa divinităţii universale, armonia cu natura. Având în vedere că se schimbă culoarea planta/om, văd sugerat că toţi trebuie să avem acelaşi rang.
