The ferns replace a fallen oak and make a home for an acorn to sprout.

“Amidst the chaos of the cities, a part of you always yearns for the silence of the woods.”—Ram Mohan—

A slow walk in the woods seems to heighten our senses, enhancing our awareness of the surrounding beauty. We can see the forest and the trees, the giant oak and the lonely mushroom. Where a stately tree once fell, the breezes have distributed microscopic fern spores. I guess there’s a message there, but I really don’t know what it is.

If you can’t walk in the woods, then lean back, close your eyes, imagine solitude, and go there. You probably won’t see the animals—but they will see you.

Smile and enjoy
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
