My experience suggests this is true. While some people may think I am
crazy, it is a fact that I was once importuned by a very sad horse-
chestnut tree who had been totally surrounded by tarmac for a car park.
All its seed fell on stony ground: Would I collect some and plant them in
fertile soil. I did. Once I "heard" a cabbage scream when a bird came
to peck at it. I have had many a similar eperience, mostly with two or
four legged creatures, but there is no doubt in my mind that "All Life Is
One" is as much a fearful reality as it is a joy.
