Hi, it's Peggy here this week. In thinking up a prompt for this week. I started thinking about forests. Right, those areas covered with trees.

I thought about all the different kinds of forests in so many different places in the world. Pine forests, oak forests, dense forests, canopy forests, evergreen forests, deciduous forests, alpine forests, kelp forests.
Forests can be scary, dangerous places, or welcoming or sheltering or places of escape. They can be frozen or steamy, filled with life or bleak and empty. They can be gentle or harsh.
Then of course there are other applications for the word forest: a forest of tangled wires, a forest of buildings, a forest of road signs, a forest of stones. Or even less concrete, a forest of obstacles, a forest of fears.

Many people have said many wonderful things about forests and trees so I gave up on trying to pick some quotes to inspire you all. You might just want to Google "forest quotes."

So think about forests and what they mean to you. How to they feel, and smell and sound? Where is your forest? What lives in your forest?
