Friendly Forests!

I just got back from hiking in the forest. I had the need to visit trees today, and it’s the visit among the trees that really grounded me back into being here in the high desert and feeling happy.

I have found myself (this week) telling too many stories about my past – but nature and trees and the big sky are really good for helping me get present. Meditation and yoga are good, but often solitary and sometimes lonely. A solitary hike in the woods doesn’t have the same kind of loneliness (ok, I did bring a dog, but . . . )

There is something wonderful about the trees!

When Dr. Simard starts talking about fungi, the first thing I thought of was a neural network. How cool!
