Impressions from January

Old trees are like living cairns.

We can learn a lot from trees: they’re always grounded but never stop reaching heavenward.
Everett Mayor

The notion of an oak tree

They are celebrating National Tree Week in England from 24th November – 2nd December 2018. What a great idea.
I think England has a lovely tradition celebrating their trees. That gives hope for the future.

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all.
But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.

William Blake, 1799, The Letters.
