There is something peaceful about trees. They can be tall and powerful or small and delicate as in a miniature Japanese Maple. They give us fruit and nuts. They provide shade on a hot day, something that is treasured in AZ. I have been to Muir Woods and seen the big Redwoods, it is in those moments that you truly understand how small I are in this world.
