Redwood Tree – the Grandfather tree – a serene presence in the forest and a source of magic

A large Redwood tree named the Grandfather tree thrives in a clearing by Quinliven Creek near Gualala. It grows slowly with shade on its trunk and sun on its crown. Every day Rick and I touch this tree. I also whisper a few things that are important to me. It's important to allow magic to enter your life - this tree is one way I allow magic to enter mine.
 For perspective, you can see Rick looking up at the big tree. Huckleberry, our golden retriever, is more interested in chewing on a branch. The second photo shows you what the tree looks like if you were looking up.

  1. If it's all the same to you, Bev, I'll give both big guys a hug! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who talks - and touches - trees and plants. I touch trees in the forest every day.
