It was love at first sight.
The Light at the End of the Tree Tunnel magicked itself into my vision.
A couple of months back, down the south coast, I followed the signs to a beach I hadn’t previously explored.
The pathway had always been there, ten minutes walk away from the campground cabin, but to me, it was a hidden Secret Garden-like treasure.
I was captivated by the soft, bushy archway of trees travelling down to the sea.
Was it a near-death experience? Perhaps, as this was indeed the light at the end of the tunnel. Even better, the tunnel itself was exquisite. I was bowled over by beauty, as well as bountiful metaphors.
Tell me your perceptions, please.
And now to continue the recent theme of art founded on tree-plus-female-human, here’s a sequence I wish to share with you.
(see a couple of tree-girl-rich posts from recent times…
Let’s look at the creative development of a teeny picture, once again inspired by the new year’s Ruby-in-tree photo.
Somehow the girl-in-tree
has combined with
the archway shape
to form this picture.
I see tree.
I see girl-woman. I see softness, strength, colour, life, sitting in spirituality.
What do you see or feel?
with love, art and soul
So beautiful- all of it. The tree metaphore is one I mine continually. Tunnels always speak volumes. Very nourishing. Here are the lyrics to a simple ditty that came to me when wandering in nature in a meditation induced altered space-
I saw a clearing in the bush
[I saw a clearing in the bush]
There was a very green tree
[There was a very green tree]
My roots are strong- my trunk is strong-
It’s time for new folliage!!
