Wood Studies and….

….wood studies and stopping to take a break,
english decides to follow me around for a bit,
but soon discovers there’s more to wood studies,
that meets the eye of a feline in the grip of the moment
—by flp


Coming soon to a blog near you, a new word and wood story on the happenings that come
my way, this time of the year while I am out in the woods riding, walking and once again
back to one of my most favorite loves….chainsawing in the woods and fields where I play.

This study will be on what I call ‘gathering mode’ and takes place this time of the year while
I am out in the woods. Before one can work the wood, one must go out and gather the wood
in its natural place of habitat. Since I for the most part do not frequent lumber yards, except
to acquire those pieces of wood that where it not for my eye, would be headed for pulp mills,
I gather my own wood from my own forest and land.

Be sure and watch for ‘Wood Gathering Mode’ coming soon….and;

Chapter 1; Holes….Wood….and Wood Gathering Mode

Thank you.

Living on the high desert trees are a luxury. ...but I go to the mountains during firewood collecting season and camp up there and cut wood. The stars are bright, the scent of the trees is enchanting and siting by the camp fire eating stew and smiling at what a great day it has been in the forest, with the trees and honest work. There is a relationship with nature and mankind that seems to come from deep within and brought back to the heart with each visit…
Frank, I read your words of your forest and I can almost feel your trees, thank you

....Mike; I like that; “to look, see, hear, feel and touch” and one more that’s much needed this time of year….smell. All the smells I pick up out here are green and full of delight.

....Karson; a mouser for sure. She’s still young and is now practicing her talents on birds. Unsuccessful as of yet, but not for lack of trying….cats will be cats.

....Lew, good spirits and thanks….yes, she is a Calico.

....Kindlingmaker; good words there from one who knows and feels the spirit of the trees. What a delight it is to read your words….I could even read between the lines and glimpse into the story picture you have so painted.
