Even the fatigue seems to have passed. I admire the old trees in front of me. They do not feel fear, envy, anger and similar emotions. They do not judge or evaluate anyone. They just stand here and silently watch how we are doing. I would like to be like a tree and therefore I will definitely go here more often in the future. I will be coming back and listening to the silent call of the wild…
