Silent Forest

Posted on by Matthew Kramer-LaPadula

When the weight of our constructed life is too much to bear, we must turn to our source. Walking silently through the forest and hearing the ground covered in life from seasons past; listening to the wind navigate the treacherous maze of trees; and watching the life that exists without our intervention. This is our home. No amount of money or goods will change that truth: we come from life and we return to life. No clothing can shield us from the reality that we are a part of nature. The earth and we are the same. By reconnecting with it, we can forget our pretense and arrive in a place where the problems of our man-made day do not exist.
