Whilst typing up hundreds of pages of notes from my boss I stumbled across this quote on aspen trees in myths, which called to mind a conversation we had about how awesome Aspen trees are.
"Aspens were thought to tremble because they had the most acute hearing and were moving in response to a divine calling."
I thought of your description of Quakers, trembling in their seats before speaking in meeting. Cool connection. And also a striking picture of Aspens themselves- what a way for trees to sing.
I hope that all is well with you in Providence!
