Fast Rooted by Pamela Phelps

“I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!” ~John Muir
Along the rural road of The Cove area of Gardiner, New York, USA, magic appears on this one lane road through the woodlands…a forest of redwood driftwood collected in the last 35 years! Information and other images on the side.

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
~Mark Twain
