“Every natural object is a conductor of divinity and only by coming into contact with them… may we be filled with the Holy Ghost.” -John Muir
Since my first journey into the pine stands of Centennial Woods, I have begun to understand what Two Trees spoke of. What a thought it is, that we should be invited into these natural areas rather than barge in. As I walked into the woods today, I was greeted by angry chirps instead of peaceful welcomes from the birds. It seemed like only the mosquitos admired my presence. As I continue to interact with this close community, I hope to learn how to coexist and communicate with its residents.
