We are slowly……very slowly learning about the amazing beings with whom we share our planet. In his marvelous book The Secret Life of Trees Peter Wohlleben share his deep insights and experiences with the forest. He is a scientist and a forester who has spent much time in the forest. And he comes out of that forest speaking not only of factual ideas but most importantly of respect and awe and one of kindred spirit. When we see all of life as he has seen the trees, we begin to act very differently toward other life.
His last words in his book read: “Only people who understand trees are capable of protecting them.”
And Coyote …the Hidden Life of Coyote….
Only when we understand them are we capable of protecting them.
