That is so true brother...but what is lost ... what has died... is reborn...transformed into something new and whole again. So nothing is ever really lost...only form changes. But its so nosthalgiac to wish for what once was... I agree that nature and the the wisdom of nature .. and the way of life that is in harmony with nature... and the magic of nature is dissappearing. It is sad that we do not honor the trees. Or we refer to life as being only material in nature...with no spirit...but then I see spirit is in the new modern world for everything in this modern world is made from nature and thus contains the essence... the spirit of the trees are in our homes. How will it all turn out is what I wonder.
