Inspiration: Wildwood

My final post on inspiration behind ‘Space to Move’. I love this book. At the heart of it Roger Deakin writes beautifully on how important trees are to our culture and our lives. The wood is where we go to ‘grow, learn and change’.

Roger Deakin: Wildwood

“The Chinese count wood as the fifth element and Jung considered trees an archetype. Nothing can compete with these larger-than-life organisms for signalling the changes in the natural world. They are our barometers of the weather and the changing of the seasons. We tell the time of year by them. Trees have the capacity to rise to the heavens and connect us to the sky, to endure, to renew, to bear fruit and to burn and keep us warm through winter.”
