Thinking about TREES
It is not so much for its beauty that a forest makes a claim on men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. Robert Louis Stevenson.
When I read this quote by Stevenson, I am reminded of the feeling of reverent awe I have when I walk through the California Redwoods. The hush and majesty of these old trees always calms my heart. Somehow, I intend to use this photo as a starting point for Ruth's page. I'm starting to gather fabric and threads, but I'm glad I have over a month to pull it all together.
