John Muir

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”

  1. Has that tree become a nurse log, with other trees growing out of it, or are those all roots of the main tree at the top of the frame that are still attached to the bank? The quote is one of the classics that I had forgotten about and was happy to see again.

    1. Thank you, Jeff – John Muir said many really beautiful things (and some of his sayings sound a bit too esoteric to me). And those are roots of the main tree, yes. It’s one of these odd long-time/all-time favorite photos of mine…
