A subtle something


It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. - Robert Louis Stevenson

  7. Well, the bugs are not so subtle something here, but I guess all a part of forest life. I'll stay in an air conditioned house!
