i never used to like trees until recently. one of the things that made me rethink trees was when i read an essay that said that trees are the oldest things alive in a city. in fact, they were here even before most of us existed.

and chet lam once said that what moves him about trees is the fact that they are immovable - literally stuck where they are for decades, sometimes centuries.

don't you think that's such a beautiful & sad idea?

Hm I can't remember which famous person said this but anyway someone said that trees are so mysterious, so grand, and all humans can manage for all its glory is T-R-E-E. D:

i've always thought that each tree is a beautiful bouquet of green.
