My first tale
Humans had been around trees for long enough now that the trees decided they wanted to understand humans better.
At first glance they realized that humans do not have roots.
This shocking discovery made them shiver and filled their souls with compassion. They prayed to human God and ask for the roots for humans.
God laughed and said that it is a silly idea, because humans like to wander.
A few hundred years later trees noticed that humans suffer a lot from cold and heat and they prayed for human God to take away their pain.
God replied with a brief note saying that humans need to feel happiness that does not exist without pain.
The last thing they asked was to make humans to live as long as they were.
That exhausted god's patience because humans only move if they are pressed for time.
God did not answer anything so trees are still praying for us.
Do you see a praying figure on the right?

Nature inspires to create. There are endless hints in the woods that inspired our predecessors to create myths and tales. Last year I started to collect the images of the dried branches and old trees that looked mysterious or reminded me of creatures or have some sort of a character.
I invite everyone to join me and help to continue my collection.
Let's try to think of a tale or a plot that involves the creature.
