I'm once again house sitting in an urban forest ... I'm among the trees with dogs to walk and a cat to scratch.
I sit at my table and type - where I imagine - develop - deliver and so much more. It's quiet here.
However, it's when I'm outside, in the majesty of the trees where my head, heart and hands are caressed.
Each place I travel I look for a tree - with whom I share a hello each day. A tree that encourages me on as I breathe its O2 and smell its essential oils.
While the pic to the right has a person in the tree, I find myself nestled into the base of the tree when I visit, we talk.
My Grove of Trees
About 5 years ago I found a wonderful grove of trees - a circlish group of spruce trees. They are on the south facing hillside overlooking the river in Calgary.
They are in a urbanscape - yet, they called to me as I walked by. Wanting to chat - enthuse images - ignite compassion - and be themselves with a traveller aware enough to stop and visit in community.
And so I adopted them - more so, they adopted me!
When I travel, I visit with them in my imagination.
Your Tree, Your Grove of Trees
When you least expect it - as you're walking with the trees ... be open to one calling to you (or whispering to you. Whereas your tree might even yell at you))smiles
Visit and get to know the tree ... stand its presence - sit at its base - and if caution is taken with sensed permission given by the tree, climb up - and communicate.
As to your grove - while the single tree you found might have others that form your grove ... it's likely you'll find a collection of trees elsewhere - often in a circle - that entice you to visit.
I encourage you to approach with hospitality ... share a simple entry celebration so the trees can welcome you as well.
Then be among them - and listen.
When you feel complete - share a simple exit celebration so the trees can say goodbye for now.
Your tree - your grove of trees travel with you - in your imagination just as you can visit with them physically. A visit whispered in the wind.
It's not that you have to go into a forest to find your tree and grove of trees.
Your tree maybe in your neighbour's yard.
Your grove of trees may have been planted by the town or city to beautify a community corner.
Just as you can have many single trees, you can have many groves of trees.
Remember to visit with them. They'll regale you with new insights - new stories!
For you ...
A tree stands alone no more
Your visit wiggles its branches
Your breathe feeds its existence
Your awareness of its nature
Grows an understanding
So green in intensity
Your wanting to paint it
for others to appreciate
