Leaning Toward Trees - Ancient Memory

{Magnificent Beech}

It's no wonder trees attract us, they have been on the earth,
evolving for millions of years. In a period called "Cretaceous",
according to this link on prehistoric times:

"the fig, magnolia, sassafras, and poplar were among the earliest to evolve.
mid-Cretaceous fossils include remains of beech, holly, laurel, maple, oak, plane tree, and walnut. "
It's hard to believe we are talking about 65-135 million years ago,
and their evolution co-incided with the ending of the era
of the dinosaur.
{No wonder we are drawn to trees and ancient flowers.}

Trees are truly living beings that, if we take the time to get to know them, will provide comfort for us when we need it. They also share their wisdom and teach us about life, despite the fact that we, the human race, is decimating forests everywhere. Where is our wisdom?

I think there was a break in connection, and it might be up to us to rebuild that connection. What do you think? People are learning to listen more to nature. Wise words, Vi. I think it's time to get the wisdom back.
