A grove for hope, for misfits, for nature in all its many forms to seek and find solace.
These trees will outlive us and spread their boughs as the world changes, constant in their mossy calm,
speaking an eternal language that connects us all.
Trees from me for all the months I've missed you.

In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree.
Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree,
"Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome.
Look at you...you're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you."
And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.” ― Tom Waits
