Old Growth

Jun 1, 2021 | 0 comments

Bombarded by the noise created to protect what is sacred to us. Our protected parks and remaining old growth forests provide us refuge when the storms are ablaze. A place to clear our minds when the dark clouds roll in. A space we can purify our hearts when we feel daggers running deep.

Run to the trees. They’ll stand strong and tall for us. Hike through the deep forest trails and listen to the whispers of their ancient souls. Soak in their calm…wisdom.. peace… They know much more than we could ever hope.

Think of the storms weathered through a human lifespan, times 100s more. Are these giants not magnificent? Are we not humbled, knowing they are worth fighting for? Easy YES for me and the many upon many more that have been sharing their objections through the avenues we see. Although I have not left to join the protests what I would like to share is a link to raise funds to support Indigenous Land Defenders of Fairy Creek.


Stay grounded in the soils below your feet and let’s do our part in protecting something much greater. They are worth our keep. Let these peaceful giants stand.

You’ll find more posts here for topics that are hitting close to home for me at the moment.

I feel blessed to live, work and play and respectfully acknowledge the traditional unceded territories of the Ahousaht, Hesquiaht, Tla-o-qui-aht, Toquaht and Yuułuʔiłʔath peoples.

Awareness – Action – Change
