Nature, trees and recovery….

The heavens opened as the first weekend on my new landing stage started. My perceptive companion witnessed my worn state so I was taken back to the Tree Cathedral. Just as we arrived the sun broke through and we sat in the Easter Chapel where it was so peaceful I almost fell asleep. As we pottered around (and took some lovely photographs) the tranquility of this special place seeped in and I still hold that peace within. Now the healing begins.

Rays of Light

Rays filtered from the sun
Streams of colour
Hosted by trees
Lit from the sky

In this place of peace
Silent retreat
A special moment

The weariness lifts
Smiles start to dance
A soul starts to settle
As it learns to just be.

    Jane buddy, I can see why this place is your favourite. The weather looks brilliant and I’m always partial to trees – I once refused to recolate because I simply adored the trees outside my bedroom windows.

    Luv and peace, Eric 🙂

      Hey my buddy I ‘get’ that one…trees are so important. I lived next to a lovely park and woods in my last home and now I get to look out on trees in a copse opposite here. I was looking for my next landing stage last night (good old internet) and there is a lovely little cottage banked by beautiful trees and I thought..yes, that would do very nicely. I will be taking breaks from the the work I am doing now and Saint has kindly agreed to come with me to wander through the trees and get some fresh air. Much love to you my lovely buddy xx

    Ah, the Green Cathedral, so exquisitely shared with us in these photographs! I am connecting with your healing peace and am just “being”!

    To just be… to breathe in the moment … to sink yourself into the now of life.. is to know peace of soul… is to know that life is beautiful… is to know.

    The last line, Dear Jane is divine……. Life is so much richer (so much sweeter) when we pause (when we breathe)….just letting ourselves ‘be’. Exquisite. ~ Love, Bobbie
