Ficus Maximus...

Post by The Munt »

No problem Bodhidharma, i had a bit of a moment to be honest where i tried to imagine the clock winding back thousands of years and the trees shrank all around me, generations dying and being born in reverse it really puts it into perspective.. i walked away feeling pretty humbled indeed. :tu:
