Tree Spirit .... yes,  they're  A - L - I - V - E   !
I can't believe I haven't thought to post this until now :)

Maybe you've seen the trees shimmer in vibrational alignment, maybe you 'feel' connected, or 'know' ..... or maybe not ..... maybe you understand the importance of Old Growth Riparian habitat for the many species that depend on them - from Powerful Owls to Pardalotes, to Squirrel Gliders, or just appreciate the cool of the shade on a hot summer's day, maybe you just have an inkling of something more, but if you haven't realized that trees are actually alive, living spirits, then perhaps this photo will trigger a long distant memory of the light, a connection between man and nature - not separate, but one.

This is no fairytale, no story on a movie screen, this is real, this is Now. How beautiful to be in such presence.

Spectacular! Looks like something out of the Lord of the Rings. TFS this amazing tree with us CJ!
Thanks Stanley, like LOTR only better! because it's real and alive :) ..... looks like it is not planted at all, but roams around the woodland at will.

It wouldn't have surprised me to see it walk around, wave its arms, and start talking !!! :cat:

Chosun :gh:
Thanks Frank :t:
