Seeing the expressions of joy and wonder on the faces of people that I get to share the forest with—when I’m not looking at the trees.

Redwood bark looks dark and velvety in the shade.
Electric pompous trees.
Bright sun on tree trunks making loud clangs of beauty. Pompous grasses laughing and giggling or chuckling
like hens in a hen house.
Silver on top of silver beach
with waves splashing more silver.

Volunteering for 19 years in the Muir Woods native plant nursery, treasuring every hour there. A redwood a day helps keep the blues away.

I participated in a pastel workshop in the Wawona Mariposa Grove [in Yosemite National Park]. I spent a couple of hours capturing a fallen giant’s reflection in a tiny seasonal pool.
