" Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life."

-- Herman Hesse, excerpt "On Trees"

The "Woods" is usually a place of mystery, enchantment and adventure. In so many of our stories, fairy tales, and mythologies, the hero goes into the forest to face challenges, encounter enemies, or discover whatever magic they were seeking on their way toward transformaiton or apotheosis. The Woods is also a source of shelter, materials for building and a multitude of utilitarian protective apparatus.

Alice Grisant worked in publishing for many years, but always related to creativity and the arts. Alice studied music and acting at an early age and worked in theater and TV in Brazil.
