Tree bien!

I found this extraordinary tree yesterday in the woods near the beach; I have no idea what sort of tree it is or how the marks got there, but it is “awesome”, isn’t it?pict03451

  1. Oh bother, the marks don’t show up properly at all. What a shame; the bark is covered with circles and spirals and shapes that look like they were carved there by something.
    It just looks like any old tree. Bah!

  2. Yes, Viv, I wanted to ask you to put a photo of it where one can see the marks. But I guess it is not so easy!
    Nice title by the way!

  3. Hi Viv – just amended things here to include both photos, in case you were wondering! Great patterns on this by the way.

  4. Now I can see what you meant, Viv. This is really extraordinary!

  5. That is a very cool tree, Viv! I want to run my fingers over it, trace the grooves. It has a magical story to tell.

    I see an interesting parallel here, the way a photo can hide lines on a tree, or lines on a face. Lines that show maturity and character. Lines that can tell stories, when words fail us. Why are we so eager to erase our lines? I would rather be a strong old tree, than a delicate spring flower that will wilt in just a few weeks. Or get eaten by a bunny.

  6. Lines on the face show where we we have been and what we have done; sometimes we feel we have too many miles on the clock, and feel ashamed of having lived. Our culture is obsessed with youth.
    I’d like to meet the bunny who would try to eat me; wait a minute, I did, and I have the scar on my hand still, forty years later!
