You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters. -- Saint Bernard
Psalms 1:3 The godly man shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The eyes are always watching
Alert for anything that will feed the soul
The way the bark of a tree swirls around a knot hole
How old man sits on the bos
Sometimes it most be stacked like a cunning prey
Other times it fives itself like a meteor in a night sky
Then we have to make something of it
With marks and lines on surface, energizing all the spaces creating depth, pattern and meaning.

Trees - Poem by Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin- Wm Shakespeare
