Copacul copilăriei

Copacul copilariei 1


„Trees can be climbed and hidden behind; they become forts and bases; with their sorrounding vegetation and roots, they become dens and little houses; they provide shelter, landmarks and privacy; fallen, they become part of an obstacle course or material for den-building; near them you find birds, little animals, conkers, fallen leaves, mud, fir cones and winged seed; they provide a suitable backdrop for every conceivable game of the imagination.”

Colin Ward, The Child in the Country, 1988
