On a blustery Good Friday, I took a long walk around my neighborhood and listened to the wind blowing in the tall pine trees. As they swayed and rustled, I was struck by their majesty and beauty, grateful that many remain despite the way that many people fail to see their intrinsic beauty - and cut them down so haphazardly. The amazing LIFE that is in the trees is so powerful. Look at them - look on them - look in them - look under them! So much is provided for us, for the wild creatures, for the Earth, from them. As you look at these photographs, I hope it leads us all to be more mindful and respectful of their grandeur and of the gifts that their presence among us gives to us.
