what i see is mine

...the sound of a babbling brook in my ear
with the noise of the world, I cannot hear.
Shut the world out, open my eyes to see…
My home is in the timber, where I love to be.

Quiet the noisy world to a hush
lay my head down in the brush…
eyes are open, head clears..
I finally hear the brook with my ears.

I will echo Trifern’s comment. Frank, both you and Steve, have added a measure of enjoyment to my day. I can’t thank you enough for continuing to allow me to wander with you on your journey.

With the forests Forests which extend your immense foliages On our faces tired and tired of so much difficulties, Foliages scintillating similar with enamels, Fountains which run in ceaseless murmurs, Blackbirds and geais merry, negligible creatures, And crowned harts of wood and branches, Shepherds and loggers come by far from the hamlets, And venerated oaks of l’ natural antique, Forests, alive world, forests, haven of peace, You inspire our steps under your thick domes And your charms then mingle with our dreams. You who defy time, the cold and the summers, Give the direction of the gods and l’ eternity With l’ man whose so invaluable life is too short. J. PELLETIER-DOISY

Only a week onboard at Lumberjocks and with so few pages viewed, I realize that I have reached my final destination. There is true inspiration through out and I look forward to all that I will see and learn though out the pages.

Thanks for making this the best place to hang out and pass the time when one is not in the shop.

Thank you all for the comments and yes, I enjoyed your presence in the woods on this trek….

—-hello Griff (Mike); ....I’ve not seen you before on my blog roll, but then thats okay….many just come to read and take what-so-ever they find in the words and go ponder in their work-shops. Glad you chose to comment and even greater that you could ‘all-most’ hear the water running….
—-hello Jeanmarc; ....and thanks for the comment and touch of words therein….
—-hello Maddhatter (Norm); ....welcome and may I offer you a warm firm tree handshake and add that you are in-deed at one great place here, where I’m sure you’ll find your pace-of-space and fit in….in no time at all.

Thank you.

What a wonderful woodworking project! Not a tree harmed or a leaf disturbed and yet the beauty of the wood is there for all to see.

You, Sir, are a true artist and I am thankful that I have been blessed to enjoy your work.
