(Video link here.) The Silent Friends is a film about trees, and how they possess the virtues we seek in those close to us.’ Whatever our landscape, they are there: friends and sanctuaries that help us navigate our world. It’s a visual ode, really. Here are our favorite lines.

You have so much left to teach us because of all the things you’ve seen..

You are the countryside, the landscape, the fragrance, the shelter and the shade.

You are the stories past and present.

You are the sanctuaries we visit to calm us down

and you are the perfect listener.

You ask for nothing in return and you give everything.

You live within your means, true to yourself…

For you, time is never lost…

You travel with us. We are in this together.

What are your long thoughts?  

You are all special. You are all important.

I look forward to our next conversation.
