After returning to Toronto and selling my house and moving to a new home outside the city I gave some thought to the tree in Manhattan. I felt there was a tree in the woods towards the back of the property which was aware I had arrived. I respectfully walked along a path next to the woods for week or two awaiting an invitation to enter and introduce myself to my new tree friend. I opened myself inwardly as I walked past each day. The light shone through the woods so invitingly sparkling and shimmering. I acknowledged the elemental beings. Then, one day, I was invited in.
