—-more thoughts on, Wood Cognition
....and in this walking out the lay of land, I sat a while and took some thought, this tea of wood is quite the drink, all filled with herbs of heady moss….
—-till in the sitting i soon was shown, that much we pass is soon not seen, and then i knew the why of wisdom hid, since each must learn out of cisterns they have filled….
I was sitting here looking into this spot of wood space, while thinking of the coming days ahead….and then before my eyes a picture of many goings on appeared. Busy is the landscape writing, within the landscape of woodscape, and so I was called back to the moment, to see within as what is here for my learning.
I have found that the wisdom of wood is ever seeking to show and teach me more….
....and so I sat and let my imagination run free, till in my spirit I heard the wood and then I looked within the image before my eyes to see the many images all-ready there….
....and then this tree stood up and said; “if one should want the wisdom of bending then come and learn from me”....
....and an-other came and stepped before my sight; “if you should want to know of compression failures of brashness, then come with me and I shall teach you of compression failure parallel to the grain”....
....and then my eyes were filled with a sight of hidden ‘wood art’, since right behind this fallen ancient one of ages past, appeared these legs of rooted birch….
When I go to read a book on wood, I go to the authors of the source and learn from them about their kind….I read wood!
