Pine Trees--Free From Blame

I love to saunter through a pine tree grove. The deep needle bed below my feet in inviting. It beckons me to come lie below the arching drapes of green branches as the earth cushions me. The rush of wind through the needles wraps itself around me and I feel comforted. All is well as I melt into Nature.

Nothing stands up more free from blame in this world than a pine tree.
