I’m reading The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben at the moment and I cannot believe how moved I am by the book. It should be mandatory reading for every leader and politician. Excerpts of the book are also worth reading to children as a bedtime story so they can make dreams come true some day.
I am always comforted in the presence of trees. I never feel alone when I am in a grove and seek this companionship when ever I can. For example, my work in Esperance is always pretty full on and so on my way to the airport I invariably stop off at the Arboretum and I instantly feel a sense of being nurtured. From the book, I now I know why.
The picture I share today is a landscape of grass trees along the Ocean Beach Road between Lancelin and Jurien Bay in Western Australia, north of home. I love stopping here. Early one morning there were hundreds if not thousands of kangaroo lounging about blended in the grass. It is a serene place. It is usually filled with silence. It never fails to generate a sense of wonder and respect for ancient land. I love that this space humbles me in the best way.
Until next time
