Every time I look through the photos we took on our trip to the Sequoias, new wonders emerge. And so, this is our third consecutive blog about the great trees.

I noticed that we took a lot of photos of the base of the Sequoias. Nothing I can say quite expresses the feeling that overcomes me when I sit at the base of an imposing centuries-old redwood.

To me, they are the GREAT MOTHERS of our planet.

Curled up at their base, I feel like a small wild animal. Under their protection, I yield and dream that I am traveling in the vast underground network of their roots and I hear them whisper…

We are all connected.
We are all one.
Harm one of us and you harm all living beings.

In The Sequoias After The Snow

If ever we walked on sacred ground, it was on a fresh blanket of snow
in an old Sequoia forest.

This magnificent experience
is best put into words
by naturalist John Muir.

A few minutes ago every tree
was excited, bowing to the roaring storm,
waving, swirling, tossing their branches
in glorious enthusiasm like worship.
But though to the outer ear
these trees are now silent,
their songs never cease.
Every hidden cell
is throbbing with music and life,
every fiber thrilling like harp strings…”

Seeds of Change

Photo/Text: Aline LaPierre    Photo Editing: Victor Osaka

The garden is alive with anticipation…
Can you feel it?
Summer’s long days
Are about to culminate
In the launch of thousands of sun-drenched seeds.

Contemplation

Inhale. Exhale.
Feel yourself
Looking out through the windows of your eyes.
Let the late summer’s shimmering light
Stream in through your open pupils.

Let it caress your heart.
No need to reach or grasp.

Within each flash of light
Is a seed
Carrying the promise
Of a new beginning.

Inhale. Exhale.
Call in the light
Set an intention
For renewal.
