"In ancient trees lies the visible physical expression of the mystery of the world – growth and the passage of time. Limbs, clothes, leaves, nakedness, wounds, diseases, parasites, symbiotics, communities, forests, alone.

Trees live in parallel to us with a very different perspective of space and time. As we rush about, live and die and communicate noisily, trees have a stillness and a silence and have the potential to approach eternity. They are the oldest living things on our planet. If we try to appropriate them for culture they stand outside it.

My son Rowland loves trees they are responsive to his touch yet rooted to the spot. He loves to climb trees and feel their bark, eat their leaves, tap them to feel them resonate. They make no sound but rustling."
