Forests Call to Me
Posted by lindamartinandersen on March 26, 2015
Last night, some family members gathered for dinner at my sister’s new house. My fifteen-year-old niece decorated her bedroom with a forest theme–her idea. I’ve enjoyed watching her room transform. She selected her own bedspread, which is printed in an artistic tree pattern. She also chose the room’s accessories. My favorite is a lit bare-branched tree, several feet tall, with an owl (stuffed animal) perched on a limb. Obviously, the forests call to my niece.
Earlier this month, Tim Livingston shared a guest post on March 21 for International Day of Forests. Tim is a forester artist. He manages forests and photographs, sketches, and paints its beauty. Forests and art are two of his passions. See here:
In 2013, Clarion Books published a poetry book called, Forest Has a Song, by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, one of my favorite poets. It is also obvious that Amy hears the forests’ song. See here: http://www.amyludwigvanderwater.com/BOOKS.html
Like my niece, Tim Livingston, and Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, forests call to me. How do I know? One way–the house where my husband and I live is off the highway, down a private dirt driveway, and surrounded by trees. We love seeing deer, foxes, hawks, and other wildlife in our yard.
Forests call to me. Do they call to you? In what way? Please share your thoughts here.
