Silence of the woods

“I liked the solitude and the silence of the woods and the hills. I felt there the sense of a presence, something undefined and mysterious, which was reflected in the faces of the flowers and the movements of birds and animals, in the sunlight falling through the leaves and in the sound of running water, in the wind blowing on the hills and the wide expanse of earth and sky.”

~ Bede Griffiths

One Response to Silence of the woods

  1. Gorgeous words and visual, Bill. Just love this time of year. This passage touched me in the same way that this quote does.

    “What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.” -Crowfoot, Native American warrior and orator
