Today’s post comes to you from atop the mountains of Alishan National Park in central Taiwan. Yesterday’s Christmas Eve sunset poured clouds across the valley below, in a shifting sea of light and dark. It was a picturesque end to a day spent exploring the park’s spectacular Cypress grove, home to gentle giants hundreds and thousands of years old. Tree 28, just down the hill and so deserving of a better name, is some 2,300 years old — even pre-dating the significant birth celebrated today.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a new year of discovery and expression, wherever you are in the world.
