Always, when I go into the forest. It gives me relax with cold and silent air.
If it would be any season, I have same feeling.
Recently 40% of ancient forest of Japan has lost by huge scale afforestation.
Therefore the half of Japanese forest are artificial forest then these are going to die. But nothing to say.
Forest that has been left to the nature.
Silent, no words,
However When I`m in there, taking a deep breath. and thinking about life.
then I have empathy to the afforested forest.
The reason why I think our environment of life is almost same to this forest.
I`m Thinking Between the Trees.
