In Beanley Wood

In Beanley Wood where I sat down

One day I sat in the wood…

in Beanley Wood (1)

“One day I sat in the woods, which I found to be stunningly different than walking ‘through’ the woods. And in the sitting, the woods jumped to life with a spirited activity that I had scarcely ever seen or known to exist. And as I sat there turning this way and that in order to draw it all in, I thought that it was not the woods coming alive. Rather, it was me coming to a halt.”

Walking through or sitting in?
