I have the privilege of experiencing the forest around me go through the four seasons. This frosty morning in late November I experience “Quiet Beauty.” The deciduous trees have now shed their leaves.
It is so quiet. It is peaceful.
The sun is up but some frost remains. Lichen is visible on some of the trees.
Mushrooms grow on a stump in the shade.
The evergreen trees stand tall and majestic, the same through all seasons. They know how to live in the now.
