Arborist and tree-climbing facilitator
"Like usual, I have a lot of different books on the go, but I am currently in the middle of one of my favorite summer reads, The Baron in the Trees by Italo Calvino. The story is about Cosimo, a young Italian nobleman who ascends into a tree in parental rebellion and vows never to leave the canopy. Throughout his arboreal life Cosimo stays true to his determination, finding unique ways to help his fellow man, learning about love and encountering war. It is a message to stay true to one's own extraordinary calling in life. The ending is amazing, and I always make sure I am sitting in a tree when I finish this book."
