"Protecting trees isn't altruism. It's a form of self-care."
That was wonderful, thank you (and thank you to Stephanie Foo).
My public library has What My Bones Know, so I'm going to check that out soon.
And if anyone reading this isn't in a position to buy the book or can't find in a local library, see if your local library offers Interlibrary Loan.
If they do, you can request the book and get it for free!
Thanks again for that wonderful post.
I love trees, I love this. I also just started getting into climate journalism (intersecting with lifestyle) and this. This is certainly one way to go about it. Thank you!
I really enjoyed this, thank you. Such an inspiring attitude for our place in nature
Such timing! I finished What My Bones Know two days ago. It was such an incredible book-- so gorgeously written; so inspiring; such a very important read. And I loved so much the setting of this talk. Trees and forests were so instrumental in my own healing, in no small way because of what Stephanie mentioned above about both their slowness and the way that we, as nature-beings ourselves, are intimately connected to them. Truly truly a beautiful conversation-- thank you again and again for letting us all tag along.
I love this so much! I live near Forest Park and am also a California transplant, and I’m so inspired now to spend more time there. And as so often happens with your work, Isaac, this came into my life right as I have a close friend who I think will really benefit from Stephanie’s memoir - I just sent her a copy and got one for myself too. ♥️
