Ep.3 Music in the Leaves

Written by on November 8, 2021

This week the beautiful transition of fall to winter is beginning. Some trees bare, while others still flourish with color, the crisp clean air bights at your skin to awaken the soul. Take a deep breath of this air and you’ll be awakened to the beauty and wonder all around. The smell of a cleansed earth after days of rain cleanses the mind. Take a walk in the neighborhood and let the sun and fresh air envelop you. Go to your nearest forest (prepared for more rain and mud) and observe the moisture in the environment. Think about the passages from last week, how the moss and trees absorb and drip water to the ground in a rhythmic pattern. Imagine water running up the tubes in the trees from our first episode and the mystery of how it happens. The forest is a magical, mysterious place waiting for you to discover it for yourself and lay your worries in the mossy damp soil.


Taking a break from discussing the intricacies of trees and their ecosystems. This week we slow it down and de-stress with a mix of folk and classical music. From the magnificent Dvorak to the tender guitar of Francisco Tarrega, lay down your worries and enjoy a therapeutic playlist to relieve you of your worries, and sometimes make you want to dance around in a little jig.


Join me next week, Monday from 11-12 pm, when we talk about the life of a tree: from soil, to tree, to soil! Also, look out for our tree of the week the Oregon white oak!
