Musings on the Forest Primeval


I love to hike in woods. And I’m not the only one to whom ancient stands of trees call to a special point in their soul.

On of my favorite places to sit and write is pictured. You can sit in the shade of the trees and watch the clouds drift over the lake. Between the hands of man and nature, the trees are not old, but even in a newer growth forest there is still a sense of serenity. However, travel a short distance and the scene steps back in time. You go from woods to a true forest, Climb high enough even go above the tree line to the world of scrubs and blueberry bushes.

If forests call to you or provide an intriguing setting, romance and fantasy author Mary Gillgannon’s tale of searching for the forest primeval is worth a look, if only for the pictures. I particularly like the description of the bluebells.
