You know the old saying; “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?” Of course it does, the sound is mechanical, physical, the tree is obligated to send out sound waves as the trunk hits the ground. I have a different question. If a tree is beautiful and no one appreciates it, does the tree care? I think it does. I believe that our appreciation of beauty is what makes beauty possible. Further, the things of nature which are beautiful want to be more so because they are appreciated. This is my appreciation for the day of the beautiful tree that just screaming – Notice Me!
The trees aren’t the only ones, there’s a whole forest screaming out at my as I drive by. I walk into the woods and I hear the music of the plants, the sounds they make individually and the songs of harmony they sing when I walk by, like this one:
You know, it’s not a bad place to be, and the music isn’t bad either. So lets do that, you and I lets, go out into the woods and listen to the trees. I can hear them calling me now. But before I go once more at 6:00 am tomorrow morning, I am going to dream about them now.
