The Living Tree

Heather Kallevig

“He laid his hand upon the tree beside the ladder: never before had he been so suddenly and so keenly aware of the feel and texture of a tree’s skin and of the life within it.  He felt a delight in wood and the touch of it, neither as forester nor as carpenter; it was the delight of the living tree itself.” 

~J.R.R. Tolkein

From the Fellowship of the ring – Lothlorien
