Hello Mike; thanks for the comment on the wreath….
....or better yet how about a ‘wreath in the forest’.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— A Wreath in the Forest

At some point in this dream I now live….I decided to make use of a tool most use-full in woodworking. Haha; I might as well confess and add that I’ve been using this tool of imagination from my earliest days of childhood. I’m one of those, who when my parents parents made it clear to me that it was time to put my colored pencils and coloring books away….along with those dreams I constantly talked about….I became a rebel//maverick. What folks could do to my outside by taking my colors away—-thought control, no-one could do to my interior of spirit and soul. So I continued to ‘live in’, ‘make use of’ that tool called ‘imagination’....up until and including this present day.

Now how does this bit of information fit in with the above photo….? I have a favorite quote which I am all-ways using and that I live by….’’as you perceive//see your-self, so you will be’’! So now one must understand that there came the day when I decided to see my-self as a king and all the world as my kingdom which I was glad to share with other kings. No more a pauper or just an ordinary common place person who had to all-ways look up at the higher ups, masters and so called gurus and icons. One could learn at lot if they were to sit awhile and think upon ’who made you what you are….’? So lets get back to that photo up there….

’’Kings all-ways see the opportunity to go and create in their kingdom’’! History has shown us over time that some use this power to create by building up and some use the power to create by tearing down….I chose to use the power of creation in the world of art and my medium being wood and, one could again make a good point for the case that….’all is art’. Again history will yet decide whether my use of imagination was for ‘building up’ or ‘tearing down’....and yes, sometimes one must tear down in order to build up. Now this is exactly what I have done in that photo I posted above….I decided to ‘tear down’ or ‘crop the photo’ to give the appearance of a wreath. By doing this I am showing one of the ways that I have learned to make use//manipulate imagination while living inside my dream. The next point I might make is that imagination needs to be stimulated to go further and see more then what is there in the first place….and so I will start playing with my imagination….

….now after spending time inside the ‘tear down zone’, I am once again enabled to restore and ‘build up’ once again. So what was once ‘labeled’ as a wreath….now be-comes a forest of trees. I can now ask again as to how do you ‘perceive your-self to be’ and to which I will speak for my-self and say; ’’I am a king working the wood in a mighty forest of trees’’ for me!

Thank you.

If any else but you would have posted this picture, I would have thought it was Photoshoped. Your eye and keen awareness is uncanny.
