The Druids held the trees as sacred.

"Speak to us of Work. He answered, saying: "You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the soul of the earth. For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons, and to step out of life's procession...." Kahlil Gibran from The Prophet

This past season brought a renewed love of nature and the seasons. Many mornings I walked the beaches of Lake Michigan mystified by the beauty of the trees and sunlight floating through their branches. I began this journey into the middle of forests - losing myself to the moment and relishing in the complete oneness of our nature with the earth. Manifesting from these early morning walks are charcoal drawings. They are silent.....calm....reflective........
