Tree Friend….

....drink deeply of the wood that is within,
and know for a certainty of well be-ing,
that all that resides in the soul of a tree,
will yet come to life in the spirit of rustic ‘wood art’

—-the gawker’s have gone as passing on,
but you my friend are still much watching and talking,
these moments of years we shared cannot be forgotten,
as i still watch and listen to hear what you have to say

—-your slabs of wooden golden maple yet to be,
will once again bid the gaper’s to offer their pocket change,
and who knows the final destinations your be-ing will reside at,
till in the newness of this day i pause with silence of tears

....i have drank deeply from the ambrosia of your sap,
your age of be-ing was from before my coming here,
your soul of wood is the finding of my woodworking space,
and together we are spirits both off the creation of all that is rustic

I will be posting more on this one, a friend of mine that’s time had come, as of yesterday. For today though I will just dwell on what has been….

Thank you.

There is both a sense of sadness and joy when this happens. Sadness for the friend whose voice is silenced but joy at the transformations that will occur.

I am sure that whatever projects that this becomes will do justice to the memories that you two have shared.

Thanks for allowing us to participate in this.

Nice. I think it is safe to say that neither of you, tree nor man, are afraid of change.

Enjoy the spoils sometime before it spoils.

—-hello Scott; ....thats the greatness about blogging, I’m writing and letting any who want to read and follow along with me….join in and participate in the journey also. Blogging is really just an online journey that I present to the world of something about the ‘who I am’. I remember when there was a time, when I would not have revealed some of what I write….haha, before the internet and blogging….I have volumes of notebooks all stuffed with writings and poetry and drawings and dreams. One of the reasons I never copy write my stuff is there’s so much stuff and stuff and stuff, why bother. What I write today is yesterdays words just as soon as I hit the post button….and just as soon as I can I will write some more. Thanks for enjoying the journey….

—-hello Rob; ....change is great….it gets me out of the ‘box’. What I find boring is doing some-thing, because thats the way it is supposed//always done. Why even the laws of physics and genetics are being re-wrote just as I type these words. Actually in the fields of genetics there really are no-books and so those books are being wrote today. Now when it comes to wood and trees….and I, well we are both on an ongoing change. I remember when I worked wood inside a box, and then I came out of the box and worked wood some more, now I even wonder whats so rustic about RusticWoodArt as all that was yesterday and I’m thinking of trying new ‘wood art’ laws…..hmmm. Trees know about change, since they are all-ways in a state of constant change….WOW, the wisdom that man could learn from trees….

Thank you.

I am truly sorry to hear of a friends passing, I was just reminded again of my/our friend Marks passing and it brought back those old feelings of loss and change again. The good and the bad. The bad for the selfishness we feel for the loss of a companion and the good that they have moved to a better place, the change. As life would have it thats the nature of things to change or die. Eveything in this universe must change or it stops growing and starts dieing. So it is. Change is good. Why do we fear it so? It is the most natural of processes. yet we fear the even thougt of change when we should embrace it with all our hearts, for without it we become stagnet and die. God willing I will except the next change awaiting me and embrace it with heart wide open along with mind and soul. Thanks Frank for reminding us of the necessity of a natural and necessary act of nature. mike
