Blog Log #3 – Walking With Trees

The security of a forest
As I was going through several themes looking for an essay that would peak my interest, I found this essay about the way a forest could make this author feel safe. I think the initial reason that I wanted to write a blog log for this essay is that Pamela R. Lowe has a very powerful and metaphorical style of writing. A style of writing is very similar to the “The Book Thief”, the book I recently finished. I especially made the connection to the narrator, death from “The Book Thief” in the way they describe places from this quote; “Their calm was like a blanket on a sleeping child, a silent solace that quieted my heart and soothed my nerves. There, I found the strength to let go, forgive, surrender and finally become my true self — a beacon rather than a shadow, realizing that life was not a struggle, but a flow of rhythms and dances — complete and beautiful.” The author demonstrates her relationship between the forest and her father, in a truly enchanting manner with the way she manipulates her language throughout the essay. The exemplification of how she can be in so much peace when with nature is showing how a lot of people can find their inner peace in their safe places.
