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.

A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.
— Herman Hesse

With a flower crown crafted from flowers in our garden, and the summer forest as our backdrop, this style session with Eva was a special time to enjoy the peacefulness of the forest.  I recently found out that Eva is expecting her second child- a girl. Perhaps the pink azalea blooms we chose were a sign!
