…In time I added that the scene was imbued with a perfect peace, with what I thought was an air of benevolence permeating it- but not love, love had nothing to do with it. As well, I had a sense, which remains with me, of the trees as having — what? — a quality of listening? of waiting? As if they had knowledge, intelligence, wisdom — I can’t say what exactly. I think at the very least they had consciousness.
- Sharon Butala, Living Inside the Landscape
