On our way to Manzanita Lake

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.
~ Hermann Hesse

We learned from her once again, how to be happy with a bit of sunshine, a flowing cascade and some small stones.We learned from her, how to be happy with a bit of sunshine, a flowing cascade and some small stones.
