Art-Full Wood Rats

....and so today i am going straight for the soul of the word and writing as one can when they are expelling multi-words ‘off the cuff’ of their heart….

Yes, there are times more often then not, when I will write and milk the word to get at the heart of it’s meaning and then while sitting here waiting for a heady froth, I will go for a twist in the meaning to see if I can get outside the box and examine the art-full word in a new way of meaning.

And so just as I play with the word after it has been ripped from it’s natural environment, so also I play with wood to get at the basic’s of all that grainy fiber of cellular content.

Word and wood….

Wood and word….

....much like a rhythm and blues question of who or which came first, and before you answer that question for your self….be sure and think about what is being asked and even what is the context of the where….when….how….

....i was my own worst enemy until i began to think like a tree,
and i could not even think as a tree,
until one day i walked into woods and stood as a tree,
and after standing as silence of wood—-i became free….

....freedom is a random state of orbit around the axis of no poles,
where the chemistry of mind is the quantum physics of yesterday,
and all my erupted heady high matter gives way to worm holes,
as i now find my place of entry into the ‘wood art’ of a tree-full new day….

—-the artist knows what it is to play at sculpture, just as i am known by my name as carved into the soul of wood….where the spirits of art-full wood rats run free in the designing of my character of nature….

Some of the art that my eye’s see in the course of a day like yesterday….

....beaut-i-full Lady Slipper's....

....and my heart is never fully satisfied, till it can enjoy a taste-full drink of hand worked 'wood joinery'....

....and later in the course of the day i also reap the joys of 61 board feet of white oak that awaits a day at the table of my planer, on it's way to becoming part of two counter tops....

....and at the end of the day I enjoy this art-full woody 'burl button'....

Thank you.

Thanks, Frank. Another great read!
