THE STORY OF "FOREST FLOWER"
I stand surrounded by towering trees much grander still than my already outsized imagination. The fog slowly rises, then sinks again, like the calm breath of the earth. Edges melt away before my eyes, and I no longer walk but glide through this grove — suddenly I’m one with the ancient spirits of the deep forest.
Nothing quite prepares the mind for a moment like this. Even the loudest mouth is stunned into silence. The pacific quiet here is not the absence of sound. It’s the absence of distraction. It’s the unity of mind and place, come to life in a single forest flower, reaching for the sky. One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
K’vsh-chu, the native Tolowa people say: We are all connected in this place — the deep forest.
