Have you ever hugged a tree? When no one was looking perhaps? Have you ever placed your palm on an ancient Douglas Fir and felt the silence? Have you ever looked up toward the highest, oldest branches of the grandfather trees and felt part of a world grander and more gracious than before? Have you tasted the mist on your tongue and your arms and your nose and breathed in its deep cedar wetness? Have you ever forgotten yourself long enough to let your love of this world dissolve the differences that never were?
