trees guard our path
growing green grove
What do you see?
Are you, like me, in love with the trees?
Here among the trees,
listening to the swaying and rustling of leaves and limbs in the wind,
I feel at home, connected to the Earth.
Ever since I returned to making art, I've been drawing and painting trees.
Tracing the shapes of their trunks and limbs helps me to remember that I, too, belong to this Earth.
Like the trees, I am rooted in, and receive nourishment from the Earth.
I grow deeper and reach ever higher, toward the light.
I took these photos in Buena Vista Park, my own urban forest.
