Today’s Daily Prompt asks, “When you gaze out your window — real or figurative — do you see the forest first, or the trees?”
Darn. This depends on various factors – are there certain trees that seem to stand on their own because of their vibrant colors? Or is it the fact that there are still forests standing while progress clears others down? Or it is a matter of re-evaluating what I think I’m doing with my many roles in life?
“In the woods we return to reason and faith.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
