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!

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!
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.
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!
Café Crem was created by Miki and Kev Moore in 2007 with the intention of gathering like-minded artists, writers and musicians together around the coffee table to discuss and share thoughts, ideas, art, etc.
This initial desire has surpassed our wildest dreams with a myriad of collaborations taking place between the various members, creating pieces of work that simply would not exist without Café Crem.
Have a wander though in our different rooms:
“Cafe Literati”, the Literary Room
“Café L’Arte”, the Art Gallery
“Ca’ Puccini”, the Music Studio
and, last but not least,
“The MiniBar”, our creative space for our kids and teens!
You are all welcome.
Contact Miki at email@example.com if you want to participate!
