The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the [wo]man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. As a [wo]man is, so [s]he sees. –William Blake, “Letter to John Trusler,” 1799.
I’m having a hard time focusing on my tasks today, so I’m taking a short break to share a bit of tree love.
One late October evening just before leaving work, I looked out the window and whoa! I was stunned speechless by these trees lit by the setting sun. I was mesmerized, actually.
The photos do little justice to the scene, but I hope they offer just a glimpse of the unearthly beauty that nearly moved me to tears.
I am joining Parul Thakur for #ThursdayTreeLove every second and fourth Thursday of the month. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her latest #treelove post.
