Trees have always been a home coming to me, a salvation.
I was always drawn to the deepest depths of forests as a child, to the most mysterious parts, where the ground is softer, the branches more twisting, the moss thicker, the roots stronger, sounds change, the smell of concrete dies away and peace can be found for my heart in these places.
I can breathe more fully, with more ease.
My shoulders drop and my senses open that much wider.
As a small girl I would wander off the forest pathways, drawn by what felt like the whisperings the trees contained, telling stories of a witch, Baba Yaga, a wolf or some edge rider still deeply enmeshed in the wonderment and spirit of the land. How I longed to meet one of these beings who could show me a different way, a being who could take me to their tiny cottage or underground home and teach me alchemy of our own story, the magic of the soul, potion making and tales of old.
It was through these adventures amongst the trees searching for the edge dwellers that lead me to notice and start to find the medicine of these tall beings, the medicine and beauty they contain. And to this day it is still in the depths of the trees I feel happier, beyond the edge, away from the sound of humans, just listening and seeing the great majesty of the tree. ————————————————-
