I consider my self very lucky to live in California. In fact central California, very near Yosemite National Park. Though I dont get to go to the park very often, I am reminded of just how beautiful our Yosemite Valley really is.
These trees have been growing on earth for millions of years! I look forward to the day I can hear there stories. The beginning of life and the struggles that fell on to the other creatures that slept beneath the trees.
What a magical presence they have when you see them up close and personal. to touch and share the same ground as these beautiful trees. We are truly put in our place as you compare our selfs to the giants of the forest.
I hope they never leave. I pray for the future generation of humans that they to can enjoy the majestic silence and majesty the forest kings weld as they hold court over the valley below.
To our future. enjoy nature, don’t take it for granted. Help when you can, and if you can not then, promote smart conservation and help keep the home of the giants alive for all generations to come. As a wood worker I could never think of cutting into one of these or other large species of trees. But to be given the chance to take some of a fallen giant and create a piece of furniture or turn a bowl or cup. make a table. that would be wonderful. To my wood working family. enjoy the crafts you do and thank you for all you bring back into our world.
