I headed out to Granville Island early this morning to meet a friend for coffee. I chose the pathway that would lead me to the Totem Pole that stands amongst the trees, tall enough to watch over the entire Island. It is a good start to the morning…
“If you talk to the animals they will talk with you
and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them
you will not know them, and what you do not know
you will fear. What one fears one destroys.”
Chief Dan George, Chief of the Salish Band in Burrard Inlet, B.C.

I think the top of the totem pole reaches into the tree, doesn’t it? Remember when Ralph talked to the plants and said they grow faster if you talk to them. I think Chief George knows what he is talking about.
Talking to trees is becoming main stream. “All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life its supports.” Chief Seattle
