The woods provide shelter and shade and are home to many living things.  White pines are a strong presence here in Maine and I am moved by their stoic elegance and grace.  I find myself fortunate to be able to spend time among the pines, spruce, deciduous trees, and all the animal and plant life as well as the minerals that inhabit the Maine woods.
