A forest of Fir in the middle of a city transported me to a space in which only I existed along with the tall trees that surrounded me. The diffused light that filtered through the canopies and made apparent the details of each tree, had a special quality of quietude and tranquility that I had never before experienced. I had found my place in the world, and it was here, in the quiet and slowness of nature.
