Optional theme for February:  Forest
"The dearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."
                                                                                       ~John Muir

"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's
hearts, as for the subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from
old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary trip."
                                                                          ~Robert Louis Stevenson

'The forest is green for a reason."                          ~Anthony T. Hincks

"The unrecorded past is none other than our old friends the tree in the
primeval forest fell without being heard."                 ~Barbara W. Tuchman

"I really want to dive in the kelp forest of Monterrey Bay in California.  I hear
it's like floating through a forest."                            ~Ashia Gorse Cousteau

"I got to Africa. I get the opportunity to go and learn, not about any animals,
but chimpanzees. I was living in my dream world, the forest in Gombe National
Park in Tanzania. It was Tanganyika when I began."       ~Jane Goodall

"....When humans experience something as powerful as a forest or a rainbow,
it is not crazy to assign its existence to a Creator Intelligence."  ~Anne Lamott

"Observe the beauty of forest."                              ~Lailah Giffy Akita

"The other day I was walking through the woods, I saw a rabbit standing in
front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree."
                                                                   ~Steven Alexander Wright

"I'm from the East Coast, and so therefore, the pacific Northwest forest is
very exotic land to me."                                 ~Debra Granik

"This land is your land, this land is my land, From California to New York
Island. From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters. This land was
made for you and me.                                     ~Woody Guthries

"And then I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough,
what is enough?"                                           ~Vincent Van Gogh
