"Following the way". This phrase is a good description of Tim Kovar, one 'sweetie'(dear one) of 37 years, American, professor of tree climbing. He does not only teach technique. More than that, he says
to(?) his students: "they have roots, they transform themselves into trees, they see the world from a different perspective".

He has as mission "to touch one more person each day", that is, to work to awaken, in that he looks forward to the feeling of integration, love and respect that we must have for the Mother Land.
His students learn to go up in trees and return home loaded with reflections and philosophies.

Tim lives in the United States, is coming to the Amazon and after, is traveling the world after people and trees. He needs to follow ahead(?
literal ?)(Following his heart?). To educate new teachers. To awaken more consciences. It doesn't matter with the aid of pretty sequoias or chestnut trees.

Just a note, you can use google to translate web pages and text at the following link ---

It's translation of the tengu's article isn't as good as wildhare's but it can give you a rough idea when you can't find anyone to translate for you!

Beautiful translation Wildhare. Tengu's an inspiration for all of us. Especially when he's wearing his funky helmet hat :-)
