The sun hidden deep in summer forest...

"... All things are connected.
This we know.
The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth.
This we know.
All things are connected, like the blood which unites one family.
All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.
Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web,
He does to himself.”

--An oft disputed translation of an 1854 speech by Si’ahl

There were always many forests In the Smolensk region. Even today near the Ugra river is dence forest which had not cut and not burned since 12 centure. Often wade through a forest is possible only by animal trails.
Now there is capitalism in Russia, wild capitalism. Smolensk woods changed. Very many old forests were cut and very many fields overgrown with young trees.
Along river banks to cut down woods is prohibited by law. Now these woods nobody cares and they are gradually turning into real deep forests.
