tiny predators

forget forest fires or tornadic winds. the ash tree’s greatest threat? a tiny beetle


“The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late,

is that  the more you try to avoid suffering

the more you suffer

because smaller and more insignificant things

begin to torture you

in proportion to your fear of being hurt.”


–Thomas Merton
