A forest’s stature

A forest's stature

Be strong
like the trees —
they do not
complain
when their
arms are
twisted
by wind —
a storm howls
because of
a forest’s
stature.

    How very beautiful both photo and poem! I just realized you in live in Oregon (duh!?). My hubby and I are planning to move to Oregon in a few years—somewhere around Newport, maybe, or in that section up to Portland—looking and researching for now. Lovely wild and wet Oregon! 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind words, Anna! Yes, Oregon is my home away from home (which is Montana). I’ve lived in Oregon 5+ years – 1 year in Portland, 4.5 years in Coos Bay on the coast and now Corvallis in the Willamette Valley since this March. It’s a beautiful state to hang your hat, although be prepared, if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes! I also met my wife here, so there must be something in the water 🙂 Portland has over 1 million people but it doesn’t seem so crowded b/c the city is broken up into quadrants (I preferred living in NE Portland, near 42nd & Alberta). It’s wild, wet and weird here & we wouldn’t have it any other way! I wish you and your husband only the best in your future endeavors. Hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
