"It swallows you up and begins to absorb you. It digests you. The forest. In the end you are part of its body, like the antelopes and the streams. The plants and the palm grubs. You have become an extension of it. You belong to it."

Luis Devin, The Forest Has You
(La foresta ti ha - Castelvecchi/LIT Edizioni)
