A Conversation in the Woods

    When we leave the everyday world, we all are faced with the truth that once we enter the forest we are the forest. The woods are not only the trees and the animals that live there. They are a context, and everything in it, including us, are a part of the context. These artists have brought that sacred truth here and have connected us with the multiple ways we experience the woods. - John Brantingham

    As the woods are the same, the trees standing in their places, the rocks and the earth... they are always different too, as lights and shadows and seasons and moods pass through them. - Emily Carr

    Nature is not only what is visible to the eye – it also shows the inner images of the soul – the images on the back side of the eyes - Edvard Munch
    Silence is one of the great arts of conversation
- Marcus Tullius Cicero
    Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. - John Muir
    Nature is by and large to be found out of doors, a location where, it cannot be argued, there are never enough comfortable chairs. - Fran Lebowitz
