I have found recently how of all of my experiences in life, the one I covet the most is my time in nature. More so, time without the presence of other human beings in nature, so that I can hear the trees sing. Since I was very young, my fondest memories are of being outside, in a field or woodland or a beach, are imprinted in my adult mind. I have always mental conversations of the creatures, the plants, rocks, the elements.....however strange it may be to conceive of the thoughts of a tree, I do and always have. What I find most magical is that the "thoughts" of the natural world are pure expressions of themselves. I love the songs that the trees sing, how they greet me when I approach their family or grove. They always are welcoming and excited to have a human with their ears tuned in.....And I am always touched that they care....that they want to connect with me....that I feel loved. There is not any confusion of who or what they are or what their purpose here is. Human beings are fascinating in this way, and I am somewhat enchanted with the mission of helping our species remember who we are. I ask this question to myself often.... What are we here for? And the answer always comes back..."We are here to remember love." So that's what I am here to do.......
