"It is difficult to realize
how great a part of all that is cheerful
and delightful in the recollections
of our own life
is associated with trees"
Last night we watched the most wonderful program
Judi Dench: my passion for trees
Being a life long tree lover/hugger it spoke to me …
Judi visited a 1,500 year old Yew Tree in Surrey England
I googled the tree and read that some believe it to be as old as 4,000 years!!
It was absolutely spectacular.
"Because they are primeval,
because they outlive us,
because they are fixed, trees seem to emanate
a sense of permanence.
And though rooted in earth,
they seem to touch the sky"
My love for trees spills over into my Art...
my "Women of the Woods" series has 30 pieces of wood spirits & stories
bark and branches
nests and birds
Women of the Woods
Moon of the Changing Seasons
Change with the seasons
embrace new growth and shed
what no longer serves you …
Like the cycles of a tree
feel the soil between your toes
Like the roots of a tree
Allow your hair to move carefree
with the changing directions of the wind …
Like the leaves of a tree
Sway your arms and legs
and dance …
Like the branches of a tree
Let not the space you are in define you,
but the space that lies within you.
Own your space …
Like the constitution of a tree.
for the trees xo
