The whole thing

Sometimes It scenes feature the oddest things

(Easy to miss the whole dream)

As the eye’s overview

Prefers to hide unrequested exceptions from you

Puzzle me this: A piece full view of a Crepe Myrtle tree by lake. (© image)

Is this a tree trunk with holding? (© image)

Nature’s a genius, an organic sculptor, or master prankster?

Always a quandary with find art:

What point of view, from what perspective and distance from the whatnot.

If it’s true He has the hole world in his hands, this crepe myrtle tree is probably safe from landscapers and HOAs – at least for a while. (© image)

The whole thing seen and unseen

Totally dependent on this one thing:

Humans may have a short focus, but sometimes they do see the forest and the trees…just not the road in the middle.

Speaking of trees, some wonder if those are shining examples of “Wooden, you like to get along with others?”

Often wondered:

Does that accessory tickle or just tick off an upstanding native?

Oh well, an alien, a simple organic, or problematic knot, it’s all I got.

(Have to admit it all kinda grows on you.)

Phil, the Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge

(Befuddled over this muddled post? Sr Staff is still battling medical dragons (will spare you the details) and now recovering from surgery which went well, creating, cautiously, more optimism while waiting for the pathology which drives everything. This is about as even as sequential thoughts can get right now. Just sitting on the dock of the bay and drifting along until more known. Thanks for hanging in.)

    we agree nature is a genius….. we often see that trees and people have to stand the same things.. ;O)

    That’s a terrific tree trunk, and less than terrific news. Still, it’s good that you’re past ‘all that’ and awaiting test results that I hope produce even more optimism. Slog on, Sister!

    Nature is nothing if not adaptable. And so we can learn from it as we drift along and wait for the next steps. I hope all news is good news.

    Encouraging news . . . and yes, lots of details — many of them interesting and amusing — to be had with a bit of attention, even if fleeting.

    Interesting things you find in nature if you take time to look.
    Sr Staff, get out those arrows and slay those dragons.

    Dear Phil,

    Wishing your Senior Staff a speedy recovery!

    And on the subject of trees and Nature, I would like to resonate with your photography by inviting you to take a stroll with me in the Birch Forest Landscape with Mushrooms:

    May you find the rest of 2022 very much to your liking and highly conducive to your thinking, writing, reading, photographing and blogging whatever topics that take your intellectual fantasy and creative reverie in all their depths, diversity and profundity!

    Take care and prosper!

    Yours sincerely,

    I wonder if it lines up with the Winter Solstice, wouldn’t that be fun?
