Beautiful and Sad …

“If you are alone in the mountains for some time – many days at minimum, and it helps if you are fasting – the forest grows tired of its wariness towards you. It resumes its inner life and allows you to see it. Near dusk, the faces in tree bark cease hiding and stare out at you, the welcoming ones and the malevolent, open in their curiosity. In your camp at night, you are able to pick out a distinct word now and then from the muddied voices in creek water, sometimes an entire sentence of deep import. The ghosts of animals reveal themselves to you without prejudice toward your humanity. You will see them receding before you as you walk the trail, their shapes beautiful and sad…”
