I find the woods to be a relaxing place, and I know that a lot of people share that feeling. The sounds of a forest can take you away, connect you to something primal and return you safely to the familiar. But why do we yearn for the forest? What is it about the trees and life inside of it that makes us go back to it? Symbolicly speaking it's about roots.
We connect to nature, because we are part of it. In some interesting way, we find ourselves reflected in nature. Cycles of life, carried out for centuries, going on, trying to sustain and survive. It's pretty ironic then, when some people try to destroy it. They truly are destroying parts of themselves.
