Background Music - Forest Relax by ANTONIO TRICARICO
A video I made dedicated to a very special lady with some very unconventional pursuits - a great lover of nature, especially the forests and woods, and may she find what she's searching for on that long trail through the magical enchanted places.
Eleanor Farjeon ( Pseudonyms : Tom Fool. Chimaera ) was an endearing, eccentric, gifted writer born in London, England on 13 February, 1881.
The daughter of popular novelist Benjamin Farjeon and Maggie (Jefferson) Farjeon, Eleanor came from a literary family, her two younger brothers, Joseph and Herbert Farjeon, being writers, while the eldest, Harry Farjeon, was a composer.
She wrote about her own childhood; she wrote about the poet Edward Thomas, whom she loved; and she wrote countless plays, poems and stories, many of which achieved international recognition. But of Eleanor Farjeon the woman, little is known.
Her background was extraordinarily lively, for she grew up in the family of a best-selling popular novelist, and was from the start surrounded by the world of literature and the theatre, people with larger than life figures as the legendary American actor Joseph Jefferson, Ellen Terry, Henry Irving. Eleanor wrote the hymn Morning has Broken, later recorded by the singer Cat Stevens.
The opening introduction to Trees:
I know nothing whatever about trees.
If I did, I would be writing of any other matter. For what barren little text-books may be produced within the limits of knowledge ! and none, but some pedant with a grain more of knowledge than yourself will have produced a better text-book on your own theme.
But when I speak of that I do not know, I show my pedants a pair of heels, Perseus-sandalled, with a golden feather of fancy and the blue wing of a dream ; and I rise where they cannot follow, wag they their heads never so wisely sitting spectacled in a ditch.
And for those who expected, perhaps desired, knowledge of me, here is all my little store to begin with, exhaustible in a few breaths. I have a friend who lives among the loveliest woods of Berkshire, and I wish she were at my elbow, for she knows trees from the outside as well as from the inside ; and on the rare occasions when I share her wood-life she will now and then instruct me as to the night-jar's note, or the name of a rosy butterfly, or how to find Arclurus, or differentiate between ground-ivy and that other blue flower whose name I have already forgotten. But mostly she will teach me the way of knowing a chestnut in its youth, or an elm in its nakedness, or a willow that has not yet learned sorrow. Alas, I remember none of these things longerthan a day and a night, and rely now only on the things which I cannot recollecthaving been taught. Few children could tell less.
