"You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters." Saint-Bernard

A master may point you in a certain direction.
But only you can go there in person.
Trees invite you to look up.
Without doing anything, themselves.

I'm lucky to live in a state that is covered with forests. As a child, I grew up in the woods. It was the playground for my friends and I. We later smoked tons of weed in those same woods, which is DOUBLE plant interaction.

Unfortunately, I'm crazy as cat shit. That doesn't disprove the study, though; if I hadn't have had those trees around me / burning in my lungs, I could have turned out much worse.

Who decides who is a dope, and who is not?
Is it important, who is who?
Perhaps all men are dopes.
Only some more so than others.

I feel benign, tonight, and so regard you all my tiresome children.
A pain, to be sure, made cosy by warm sake wine.
Even so, the slim hope of a slim future, by some slim chance, attainable.
My time was then, is now, with or without, slim hope.

It is well that none of you know anything.
There is nothing to know.
There is only what is. Made so by what was.
Combined to become what will be.

What will be, arrives as what is, and already what was.
And none of it recorded, beyond a moment.
Mad youth, aches of age, dust of always.
All you could ever do, was smile.

That's not a real number and you know it!

It's totally a real number man. I was completely high in math class and it was the right answer. I think. I had to go to the disciplinarian office after that.

Life is my god, or rather my pantheon of gods, and trees factor heavily in this. Or rather, the woods do: the whole thing seems alive. The predators devouring the weak are like digestion in a body, and the wind in the leaves like a brain...

I think we should be teaching some classes surrounding a tree like the druids once did. Especially philosophy classes. It would be healthier. And screw those gymnasium. Gym classes should always be outside.

Trees invite you to look up.
See how small you are?

Trees are the perfect exemple of non action. They even do nothing when you cut them down. But they know that if you kill them all, it will be the doom of mankind

I too am quite enamored with them. I like to picture them with no leaves and the dirt removed, symmetry and balance, not rejecting the cold dark truth but never stops reaching for the impossible. Trees are dirt that refuse to stay put, but those who bend by the winds persevere the longest. All the paradoxes of life and the human spirit can be found there if you look hard enough.

A tree, cut into rounds, prior to splitting for firewood, actually weeps.
Sap oozes out and makes you sticky.
I take only dead trees for firewood.
They are past weeping.
It then becomes a detailed search for grubs and spiders.

Locally, we add the delightful common wood scorpion to the mix.  For reasons unfathomable to man, the little buggers turn out to be dynamite smallmouth bait.

How do you avoid getting stung? Pliers?
