Serendipity Is a Gentle Goddess

So it was that one sultry summer afternoon I followed this path through the woods and happened to find a small pond and meadow, where the canopy of  trees parted to reveal the blue, blue sky.  Truly, a shelter from the storm.

…so Wonderfully Changes and Renews a weary Spirit

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
