Beholder of Art to be-hold,
i gather what surrounds me,
adroit nature i am
—by flp

And so I was sitting this morning looking over some photos I had taken recently outside and out of my landscape of framework, came these pictures speaking to me. Imagination is a wonder-full gift, and when coupled with writing, the words of the soul can be heard, which has caused me to spend a rich time here at my desk with pencil and paper, writing out note-full stories for future blogs….

....I will be writing more on this one soon, which comes by way of ’Texas Treasures in a Backyard’. Such a beauty to behold and as I was looking I saw the texture of ‘rattlesnake skin’ in the wood…. apple sitting here up high, which in turn has saved this one from the grasp of an ‘eating frenzy’ of deer. One could say this apple has also been locked in by those bars of the branches that surround an upward view, but then also maybe this one’s mind, is not cluttered with all the preconceived ideas that inhabit mine….

....and even in the snow and dirt of winter, life goes on just waiting to break forth into abundant green….

....wood and hair, caught in this moment of a flash, as so also are we caught expressing life in this moment of now….

Thank you.

” smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood….”

I enjoy both your writing and your photography. They give me cause me to stop the hurried pace of my daily life and simply reflect on the small mundane details around me that are often overlooked in the frenzied pace that we pursue.

Thanks for the post.

Nice pictures and thoughts. Capture of the hair in the stain shot, interesting. If not explained I may have guessed a blurry branch invasion…
