Marian has always loved trees. She has spent many hours painting trees on canvas and showing their intricate and delicate beauty against the sunset sky. This love has translated into a rich relationship with nature and feeling Spirit’s presence in these lush and living entities. She has many favorite trees and consistently photographs them in an attempt to capture their beauty and their Spirit. It is her goal to have young people of all ages look at trees differently—to see them as living and sensitive to their environment and to our interconnectedness and the interconnectedness of all things as a part of our spiritual journey.
This book is written in a poetry format as a piece of children’s literature. It is the author’s desire to share this perspective and to inspire the reader to look at the world differently—to see the interconnectedness of all things and to feel the joy of Spirit in all of life.
