Rain For Us

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”

-Hermann Hesse

I love Herman Hesse. Sidhartha remains one of my favorite novels. This quote makes me imagine myself as a tree--my arms as branches with my fingers as tiny offsets; my toes as roots.
