There’s no App for this

Standard

I want to tell you a story about these trees. I’ve photographed them at different times of the year and different stages in my life over a couple of years. I actually feel like they’ve been on a journey with me.

I’ve celebrated amazing moments with them – we went for a walk at this park straight after I found out I was pregnant after trying for years. We introduced our son Matthew to this park when he was only a few weeks old (that photo is in the gallery) and now that he’s three he still enjoys running around the dam where these majestic giants live. I’ve contemplated my life here. I’ve cried. I’ve laughed. These trees have heard it all, really. They’ve touched my spirit.

When my mind is a mess this is where I go and sit for a while to figure things out. I’ve found that the answers I need usually come when I sit quietly with myself.

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. – Hermann Hesse
