Burnt Forest

I often walk through thousands of acres of forest burned in Nova Scotia in 2008. Nobody else goes there.

“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.” Rumi

Slender Prayers -Amrita Nadi
Ascending -Victoria Svoboda
Scriptures from the Firelands -Bev Byrnes-Laird

Another page of the Crazy Torah I read as a young boy is seen in the following photograph:

Seeing every element in nature as letters making up Torah is taking every fork in the road at the same time.
