Tellin’ Wood Stories

....and so just how good is your seeing and can you see where the shape is, or do you need to be given a hint to see what is all-ready there, but one then knows not what they are looking to see and so the shape of what is, remains for some to be passed on by as what are you talking about….

—-and what if no one ever asked you to look into this picture of wood, could you be counted on to take initiative and find for yourself the picture that lies here within, and would you then think that there is more in life then the glossy out of focus faces we pass each day, those ones who will remain locked within the art of our wood as they ask for attention on the basis of what we create….

—-it is with this thought in mind that seeing can often be likened to looking where no one told you to look, this is what i call imagination in the art form of lofty clouds of glory, passed on down to the valleys of mud singing composers that walk the line of being touched in the head, while all those others stop ever so often to stare and shake their heads at there goes another one….

—-wood pile of glory,
all set to tell a story,
now the riddles all within,
so let the story be a tellin’....

....what do you see….

GODSPEED,
Frank

for some reason, I’m reminded of an IMAX movie preview, with voice over narration by Leonard Nimoy. “Beavers. The biggest dam movie you’ve ever seen.”

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the eye of the beholder sees through a veil of past experiences, distorting and highlighting the view.

Other than the owl sitting on top of the pile, I’m with Scott—a pretty big beaver dam.

Hello everyone;
—-well lets see all the stories that have been created by his picture:

Dennis; “a good place to back up my truck!”
Karson; “a piece of spalted wood in there!”
Scott; ““Beavers. The biggest dam movie you’ve ever seen.”
Debbie; “owl sitting on top of the pile”
Don; “Or is the owl a cat?....how about the Teddy Bear?”
Debbie; “Yah, maybe a cat.”
Mike; “I could set my lathe beside that pile and never stop.”

Thanks to all who took the time to stop and look and also for all those who commented here on this picture. I have enjoyed all the stories that you have created….and I’m thinking of writing a story about all these lines of ideas that you have given me.

As to what I saw and what you have seen, well….no-right way and no-wrong way of seeing here, but yes, as Don has stated; the owl is a cat! HA!—-only thing is, I’m still looking for the teddy bear….

Once again, thank you.
GODSPEED,
Frank
