High Coo – August 6 – Tree Hugging

Me tree hugging in Forest Park Forever in St. Louis Missouri

In Thich Nhat Hanh’s book, Happiness, he identifies Tree Hugging as a happiness practice. Along with describing his own practice with various tree types, he sums up with the statement, “When we touch a tree, we receive something beautiful and refreshing back. Trees are wonderful! They are also solid, even in a storm. We can learn a lot from trees.” (p.155)

Here’s today’s haiku: Tree Hugging
