It’s no secret. I’m so in love with this tree. My relationship with White Pines started when I was very little and here I am, so many years later, still hiding and climbing its branches. Still running and seeking solace at their base, still burying my face into their bark and needles. This tree has brought me strength and peace throughout my entire life.
What is a ritual? According to the dictionary; it is any established form of a ceremony, ritual observance, or an act or series of acts regularly repeated in a precise manner. One of my favorite rituals is that act of stepping out into the gardens in the evening to collect herbs for a night time tea.
