Gratitude to the trees

I’ve always loved trees and walking through forests. Today our walk took us through the pine forest up to the Moserer Hohe to collect a stamp, on our way to getting a gold badge for walks in the Olympia region. I felt very thankful to the tree roots on the walk down which wind across the path and give good foot holds. I like to touch a tree trunk and feel their life force and connect with the earth that way and give thanks. This led me to appreciate our connection with the trees throughout our history and how we take them for granted perhaps. We do far too much destruction of nature and need to care more for the trees especially the older deciduous ones.
