Question Any other treehuggers out here?

Now when I say treehuggers I don't mean generic hippies, although HI to you too. I am asking if there are any other druids here and if there is a place to chat with people of like beliefs and whatnot.

I'm not a druid however I feel very close to trees. To me, they are very wise and "sacred" beings. I don't have any philosophy, practice or spirituality, but I feel a very strong connection to them.

I feel a strong connection to trees too. I'm interested in nature worship and paganism, but I don't really know enough or whether any paths fit me.

At the old house I recently moved from, there were two big old Pines at the front of the property, sat on either side of the path that led to the house. My housemates and I called them the protectors. The best times were sitting on the porch during a storm, watching them get blown around and drenched in rain. And at night when everything was quiet and still, especially when the moon was up. I once saw a little fox run through the front yard and out through the trees. Just thought I'd share a story of some trees I love. :P

Last Saturday I hugged a solitary tree in a meadow and in my mind I saw how my body turned to bark and we connected to one being. It was absolutely magical.
I wasn't trying to visualise anything, it came suddenly and naturally.

I have have had a soft spot for trees all my life... well as far back as I can recall. I have a number of Lawson's cypress and Plum trees growing around me which I find peaceful even as they sway in the wind.

Can't say I'm a hippie or a druid but I have hugged a few trees in the middle of the night when no one was looking, ha. After all, they're helping to keep us alive. I felt it was right to show them my gratitude, somehow.
