How would life be without trees? The truth of the matter is that, we could not exist as we do if there were no trees. A mature,robust and leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year. As people move to different places in any part of this world where trees abound, not many realize that the forest serves as a giant filter that cleans the air that we breath. I took an interest in documenting a spot I chanced upon as I explored the high hills and forested areas of (scallop-rich)Sorsogon, Philippines on my vacation. This is a century(plus) old acacia tree in Bucalbucalan that I learned about from the locals.
A generation plants a tree, another gets the shade- Chinese Proverb
When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen : There will be something solid for you to stand on, or, you will be taught how to fly.
"Like all unbelievers and polytheists, Christians are filthy. They are najusa (feces, urine) — a filthy impure dirty substance.” [Yasir Qadhi, faculty member, Rhodes College, Memphis, TN.]
