  1. Heartfelt thoughts for you al at this time … Forests let alone ancient Forests are such beautiful healing places for all living souls in so many ways … A place and home for many animals and critters and a space for us Humans to deeply connect with Mother Nature and reflect and renew our purposes in life with a purity of spirit and knowledge to continue our journeys with an awareness and consideration of the consequences and vision of our work for a better life for all . In short Forests are Sacred places .

    What an Ugle Inhumane Opperation the Germany Police have Shown they can be . Shame on the Ignorance of Mrs Merkle and her thugs.

    Bless everyone of you for your Braveness and for standing up for this Sacred Forest . You are all my Heros . Defenders of Humanity and Intelligence . Peace and Love Always .
