The Beauty of Wood Art

....and so this morning i am just pounding out some thought think as this substance called ether is slowed down and takes on a body form called words….

—-gathering words, is like the woodsman who knows that in the pith of the forest flower, there is a sponge of gathering goodness, that yearns to be harvested, from the overflow of heart-felt expressions of eye seeing i….

—-sowing in the morning, sowing in the evening and all-ways casting my bread upon the waters, i in likeness of-kind-of-frame-of mind watch expectantly for my success-full-increase….

—-and even now i hear the groaning of all creatures, as the creation awaits the revealing manifestation….

....and so i opened my eyes and looked…. all that was before me….

....and i saw that all was very good….

Thank you.

I love it when an eye sees something that is right before our eyes but most eyes miss.
The last photo is my favourite. “Abstract in reality” is what I call this type of image.
The pix before it is fascinating as well.. Gosh nature is interesting!!

Keep those “eyes peeled” Frank! :)

Hi everyone;
—-Debbie; yes I’m keeping my eyes peeled….kinda like an onion. Everytime I think I can see clearly, lo and behold….another layer gets peeled back and I’m seeing again for the first time. First sight of NOW is far better then yesterdays old sight….this is why each and every new day is such a moment of new awakening. And if I don’t like what I’m seeing at this moment, well all I need to do is take a deep long in-hale….ex-hale….and in the next moment another layer gets peeled back and I’m looking at ‘very good’!!!

—-thanks Todd; ....’perpective’ is and can be; linear—-planar—-and then there is dimensions. That what I appreciate about wood, kind of like when I take a gouge and dig into the wood, never knowing whats going to be revealed, but knowing that something good is going to come forth.

—-thanks Dennis! I’ve been busy around the homestead here and I’m going to have to get out on a walkabout and get some new pics….might even get the atv out and go for some deep exploring in the woods soon if the rain will hold off, no more snow and whatever.

When my kids were 7 & 9 I thought life was perfect – that they were perfect. And then things just kept getting better and better.
When I was 25 I thought that I “got it” and knew what life was about. And then when I was 40 I thought that I had really gotten it and since then, pretty much every day I am amazed by some new piece of enlightenment.
Life just keeps getting better and better.

So true Debbie,

When our little one was just a few months old, and we were no longer so exhausted by our new routines, a co-worker once told me that come six months they start to get really “fun.”
He was so right, no longer just an abstract concept that needs to merely be fed, changed and sleep, but a brightening, interacting and entertaining entity full of life and love. Since then It has only gotten better. She’s four now, she still dances like no one is watching, she’s one of the happiest and truely funniest people I know.
