Even needle and thread.
how u “pare” a thought or story down to its pure essence. the interconnectness ‘n one-der of it all. i’m in total aaaaaaaH…
Oh yes….moon song most certainly. And of friendship.
Those lil red hearts speak way bigger than their small size!
Dots are beginnings…
I do love these guys. They remind me of a scene from the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun.”
“Patti: There’s something strange about these trees. It’s like they know.
Frances: And they know that we know that they know.”
It’s true. Trees know a lot more than we do.
Oh, there is that word “strange” again…
It is all pairing and it is all connective or that may be because I am seeing spirit connections in reaction to the tragedy in Maui. Your pairing are tree spirits in my eyes and their thready branches are reaching out, across the globe to offer sacred healing to the beloved Banyan tree in Lahaina.
We moved to Maui in 2002 and lived there for almost 2 years, renting a home upcountry in a town called Pukalani. Pukalani is not a tourist town but is known as the gateway to upcountry and to Haleakala, the dormant volcano in Maui.
At this higher elevation ,trees dot the landscape, especially jacarandas and Norfolk Island pines, what I call feather trees because of the shape of their needles.. If you are so inclined, you can feel spirits just about everywhere in the natural world in Maui… My favorite tree spirit was the over 75 ft feather tree that stood in one corner of our front yard., Birds would fly in and out of the branches and I read many a good book and wrote many stories sitting underneath this tree. The benevolent spirit of this tree fell around my shoulders, wrapping me in an island hug much like the afternoon trade winds… I have just learned that fires are approaching parts of Pukalani….
Though I haven’t been there, my son visited during his latest travels and was so impressed with the spirit of the place, as he put it. So sad …
It summoned images of a magical winter night near a frozen pond!
A frozen pond would be nice right about now 🙃
Probably stating the obvious but…pussy willow! Love seeing your needles and threads.
I actually found a stray needle and thread in the nothing basket today.
Ha Good one Deb!
Love these tree people! Trees and moons have a magical link … the mystery of the night.
Ha, the mysyery of everything!
Tree Selves 💚🤎💚🤎💚🤎💚 loving them!
I think they are in transition. maybe new form will come to selves.
Love them reaching out 💙
i think they might be weaving.
Oh! Forest Figures speak to me!! And their Eternity…
Beautiful piece, Jude…
it started with the moon
Why did I know you would relate to these tree guys, Nancy D.? Miss seeing your tree photos over on the old stitchery site. I love Jude’s tree folk. Never met a tree I didn’t like, except for palm trees.
IN & OUT
PUSH & PULL
UP & DOWN
BACK & FORTH…AND ON IT GOES!
that’s it in a nutshell.
