“I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines.”-- Henry David Thoreau

    along with the Maya Angelou quote from the 15th of september todays quote is one of my favorites, that someone can truly value a tree

    actually it is not just that someone can value a tree, but that they can see it is also as a living thing that a human being has a relationship with

      Yes I can remember putting our ears to beatiful ghost gums and thinking we heard small people in them,,the clinking of cups and the pouring of water..it maybe true.

    I often think of the massive oak tree at the back of my chidhood home I grew up with it looking down on me.

    Thanks for the comments and the votes – all noted. Its really interesting which pictures you respond to. This one for instance – a horse trek to Gongga Shan, I have always overlooked. It has come from a folder that I have trawled through several times and it has always remained hidden to me as anything special. I am very happy that it has not only made the grade but is getting poster status as well.
    The plan is to design a poster with a very light dove-grey border with both the quote and the Poetic Universe Tibetan calendar logo in the corner. I need also to research whether there is any copyright issues with reproducing the quotes – does anyone know the law on this?

    pun definetly intended

    I don’t know about copyright but the fact that these quotes are on many websites for public use and I would assume that these websites do not pay for them..it should be OK.

    the answer is Google ….or call a lawyer.
