Monday's Nature Quote



What if I fell in the forest--would a tree hear?

  1. Yes, because it's usually the tree I stumble into, or one of it's well-placed sneaky roots.

  2. If a tree heard me fall, would it care?  Would it snigger behind its bark, or feel smugly superior to all such unbalanced, mobile creatures?

  3. The tree's response could range from a sigh to a snicker depending on what you up to at the time.

  4. It would probably sigh and think, another short timer hitting the dust.

  5. Oh, if the tree could tell us what has passed its way through time, what a historical tale it would be; especially from those very old ones.
    I like to think it hears its passers- by and notices those who stumble and fall under their amazing canopy.
