A 100 year-old love letter to trees by Hermann Hesse (July 2, 1877–August 9, 1962), I found this on Brain Pickings blog and it really spoke to me. “For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree.”

This tree grows proud near my house. It glows in the late afternoon light and I look forward to visiting and basking in its glory. Do you have a favourite tree? .
