  13. This is so not my thing. As you know!! I do think your pic is a better interpretation than the one on WP. I haven’t yet got around to posting about that. But I almost certainly will :D Thnx for your comments – been busy with another blog as had to import posts and recategorise. Que peña!!

  14. Here’s from the lyrics of King Missile. The song is called The Trees:
     
    Then there was the time that the earth was ruled by trees.
    There were emperor trees and empress trees. All trees were royalty.
    Their roots sank deeply down into the ground, and their branches reached higher into the sky than the birds could fly.
    And the trees all communicated with each other, and all of them together made the decisions for the entire planet.
    Their authority went unquestioned for many thousands of years.
    They were wise and benevolent rulers, and the world prospered.
     
    But when the others came, they did not understand or recognize the power of the trees.
    They set up new systems that supplanted the trees and sapped their strength.
    And now the trees bleed rivers of blood down in the ground under our feet.
    There’s an ocean of blood in the core of the earth, and now we write on trees.
    We make furniture out of trees.
    We clean up kitchen spills with trees.
    We wipe our spotty behinds with trees.
    We put trees in our houses at Christmastime.
    The trees say nothing, because now they are weak.
    But they know that our time will be brief, that we will soon perish and the trees will rule again, and the earth will be strong and beautiful once more.
    So, you see, it’s not such a sad story after all.

    • ouch! thanks for stopping by again,
      and thanks for sharing!
      i think it is a good reminder to be wise with the resources available to us, globally as nations, and as individuals.
      we can all make a difference.
       
      but ouch! food for thought is sometimes a bit hard to swallow. :)

    Great shot …

  16. I like the blog note, I was indeed looking for the young tree. :)

    I agree the tree very unassuming as we (your visitors) need to have a closer look in order to find it or it needs your blog note to find it. haha

    • yes, it is rather all by itself – but i think it is doing the big trees rather proud :)
      and on stormy days, their words of encouragement will reach that little one even quicker than on other days by the gusts passed on by the wind….
      what a great inspiration for a story, Patti. hmmmm…..
      maybe one day :)

  20. This entry hold a few surprises for me. Just woken up and not being fully there yet, I first didn’t saw the young tree. Only when I read the title. Then I almost missed the quote… but everything put together is wonderful. I’ll memorize the quote, it’s beautiful :)

    • Hi Cassie – glad you found both the tree and the quote.
       
      i must admit that little tree is quite hard to find. however i had to show a wide-angle view to allow for the contrast of the big trees. amazing to think that those tall trees once started out so small, too.
       
      thanks for stopping by! :)
