Earth Alive

For the world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, and I smell it in the air.    -Tolkien

A woman sits on the ground, leaning against a pine. Its bark presses hard against her back, as hard as life. Its needles scent the air and a force hums in the heart of the wood. Her ears tune down to the lowest frequencies. The tree is saying things, in words before words. -Norton
