“Like A Tree”– a great summer read…

I found my favorite book for reading this summer, “Like A Tree”, by Jean Shinoda Bolen. My first thought was, ‘Thank goddess, it’s not just me! There are other people out there who also feel a unique connection to trees.’ What a relief.

 I can so connect with this book and Jean’s thoughts.  Over the past 53 years, besides feeling an empathy and a unique clairvoyant connection with trees, I’ve had particular trees whose personalities and energies were keenly felt– and understood.  These trees were friends and provided inspiration for living life to its fullest potential.  Indeed, there certainly are “Tree People”– and I’m one of them.

I heartily recommend this book– Happy Reading!

“The seed idea for this book began with the observation that there are “tree people,” and that I am one of them. A tree person has positive feelings for individual trees and an appreciation of trees as a species. A tree person may have been a child who kept treasures in a tree, or had a sanctuary in one, or climbed up to see the wider world, a child for whom trees were places of imaginative play and retreat. A tree person is someone who may have learned about trees in summer camp or through earning a scout badge or was a child who could lose track of time in nearby woods or the backyard. A tree person met up with Nature in childhood or as an adult, and like the four-footed ones who retreat to lick their wounds, may still heal emotional hurts by going to where the trees are. A tree person understands why a young woman might spend over two years in an old growth, ancient redwood, in order to protect it from being cut down. A tree person can become a tree activist at any age.”
