Thought for the day and a beautiful short film about trees
This video has been sitting in my reader for a while and I was wondering just what to do with it. I wouldn't say that wood carving is really my thing, but there is something beautiful that you can appreciate from the sounds the material makes. Take a minute to meditate whilst watching this short film by The Scout as wood-worker Josh Vogel describes his relationship with trees and how it affects his outlook on life.
"Rather than personify a tree, it's more about like what aspect of the tree is in us," he says. "It's much more fundamental than worrying about eternity - it's living. And I think that that's a great lesson. I don't want to last forever, that's not my lot in life, that's not my lot in being a human."
