Ancient Sentinels

“Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic. These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long as a thousand years, and tower far above our mortal heads. As such they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power, longevity, and timelessness. An untouched forest, studded with trees of all ages, sizes and types, is more than a mysterious, magical place – it is one of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand ancient and new sentinels, guardians of the universal force which has manifested on the Earth.”

— Scott Cunningham

(Editor’s Note: Recently, WordPress implemented something called “infinite scrolling,” which allows you to over-consume information by simply scrolling down to read post after post after post ad infinitum. But my intent, as the author/owner of this blog, is for you to read each post on its own; to sit with it and enjoy it, unencumbered by the clutter and distraction that is so commonplace in our world today. If you are of like mind, you can click on the title under “Recent Posts” to the right. This should take you to a single page with a single post.)

  1. Roots like these remind me of how complicated, yet simple life can be. There may be twists and turns, but ultimately we grow towards the wide open space of the sky. :-)
