Even … the trees, have something to say

I’ve just read an article. The subject was unsettling. It wasn’t a “garden full of bright pretty flowers.”  I didn’t want to keep looking, to keep reading.

Yet I did.

When even the trees  are saying something….. it is time,  to take a deep breath

and Listen.

“Talking Trees”

 

Andrew Seal the artist, created an amazing art work.

Eight full sheets united to make one unforgettable haunting landscape.

He describes its genesis.

From the lovely zen stroll in the forest… through the transformations it took to completion.

I couldn’t look away, couldn’t stop reading.

 

I’m  highly,  recommending you read his post:  Spirit Park to Spirit Dark thechangingpalette.com 

 

 

 

 

Thoughts

My own thoughts afterwards….

 

 

Out in the forest, where there would be peace.

There’s much to learn.

 

So much to see. So much to find.

So much to say.

In the forest.

Even the trees have something to say.

 

We.    The.  People.

  • With our voices

  • With our art and,

  • In peacefulness

 

Can say something too.

 

Its been…. Enough,  to move even the trees.

Spirit Dark……  magnificent and haunting,   8 Sheet mixed media landscape.

From the lovely zen stroll in the forest… through the transformations it took to completion.

 

It makes you think. It makes you feel.

That, is art.

 

Andrew’s post is compelling,  informative and is one you won’t simply “forget.”

 

 

 

 

Making a Difference

If we want peace and unity and cooperation and harmony,

we

have to say so.

 

 

Every.

Voice.

Makes a difference.

 

Those tiny wee whispers,  the small quiet voice,  and  the mouse who roared.

Every one of them,

makes a Difference.

 

Use your voice, even if you whisper.

    • yes, there is both – I’m counting on that there is more of the kind and peace loving people, the good; than the callous. I loved Andrew’s walk through the forest… just like mine are. And then, things, happened.
      I won’t forget his words.
      cheers, Debi thanks, Anneli 🙂

    • thank you Sylvia; it was after a few days of much rewriting, that I did decide to press ‘publish.’ I certainly won’t forget Andrew’s words. nor the intent. Thanks, cheers, Debi

    • absolutely my pleasure. I’d have to say, I was compelled to say something. The majority, won’t look – comment, but that does not make these things go away. And I’m of the strong opinion (lol) that voices do matter.
      Thank you, for posting your article.
