Tree Fern Woman

Wishing you peace, art and healing

for Easter,



Full Moon


Blue Moon.

I fell over in New Zealand. In February, I fell over in New Zealand Aoteaoroa outside Piha General Store. Just a little fall, but a pulsing ankle resulted.

How might I heal? How might any of us heal?

and….Tree Fern Woman.

A bit of art and

a bit of nature didn’t do any harm.

It helped.

It helped that I was staying in a cabin amongst the treetops, able to gaze softly into the heart of the fern.

It helped that I was able to ponder the spine of the kauri.

That ankle eased up in no time.

Finally! I

am sharing glimpses of my nourishing NZ Aoteoroa holiday.

It was a feed-the-artist retreaty time.

A type of artist date. A breath of fresh air.
Of course, I had to photograph inspiring textures.

How’s this for a texture?
Is it a rock?
Is it a rock on a sandy beach?

No. It’s a Tree.

Talking of textures, here’s a link to the notion of a Mindful Kindful Texture Walk.

And another textured blog piece. This one was 

What is the Texture of the South?

from my previous NZ visit two years earlier…to the Other Island.

And…ta daa…here’s Kauri Woman. She was also healing, I’d say.

Do you have any stories to share of art-nature healing?
