Part 1: "The Three L's of Wood"

12-09-2006 04:46 PM by frank | 0 comments »

The Three L’s of Wood ....’learning wood’ was the full-fill-ment of a need to support myself, ‘loving wood’ is the passion before me as I follow your in-grained beauty and all the while I am ‘living wood’ as one now lost within the artistic expression of the image before me…. ....and so slowly, evermore slowly now of late the old timer arose from the barn floor amidst the curled wood shavings that lay sprawled all around him. It seemed to ...

Part 2: "Harmony of Soul

Harmony of Soul ....and so today while out having a walkabout…. —-i passed the way that often bears me out to that stump of a tree, that was dis-eased with wood-rot, just as i was dis-eased with all my accumulated years of endeavouring to keep ahead, while never knowing the enjoyment that comes from what ‘just is’ right before my eyes…. —-this place where it seems that ages have passed by, since the dis-covered learning of only yesterdays new growt...

Part 3: "The Mantrap of Hand Made Wood Art"

04-06-2007 12:42 PM by frank | 5 comments »

The Mantrap of Hand Made ‘Wood Art’ ”….understanding the hearing of the trees, as their branches pluck at the strings of heaven, making music that creates within, the harmony of soul.” And so once again I realized that their remains the poet in me, who in the fiery need of the moment, can throw wily wills in reverent reverse of what others have called “do as I say”, and by stretching the ‘go for-go far’ of imagination: ….cre...

Part 4: "Practicing My Takuma" --by RusticWoodArt

Practicing My Takuma of balance is the art form of a proper stance, where i thought my-self to be the one in control of the ‘takuma’, till one day i understood the power the ‘takuma’ exerted over me, and in the action of pull and polish…. ..................................(—-i became as one within the cut—-)................................. ....and so as i sat in the practiced landscape of a newly dis-covered dawn, where what had been silence, is now the high-l...

Part 5: "Taste Tested Words"

04-27-2007 03:10 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Taste Tested Words ....tis from this newness of my early rising, where golden droplets of wood chips come spireling, that i am set free of this my bricole’s comprising, where jurisprudence thought to hold me back from live edging…. ....and what is this thing i call ‘live edging’, but the willingness to be willing to explore where those ‘others’ have said; “walk at your own risk and if you do, then understand that we’ve never had any come b...

Open Slathers of…. ....these moments of time, are but the beginning of my processed self, where i have long ago given up the shape of being right, as i am now extolled into the more of this thing called oneness…. —-and where does my oneness spring from, if not from the heart of one who has all-ready made a master’s plan, just as this one i came to know as ‘old timer’, has also exposed my heart of longing to be an artist of some sorts…. —...

Wood Scripts From Dark Wood: —-an introduction; a creative writer of the words of woods, i am often enamored by any copy of my species, who would stop and sit awhile, to so share in the bliss of what has been written. Can I tell a story from the hearth of the forest, while the embers of the charcoaled goods are still steaming forth with frosted screeching, as rustic wood spirits sit around the galactic stones, warming their hands to the anticipation of another fire breathed...

Part 8: "Stories of Wood That Yearn"

Stories of Wood That Yearn ”....tis in the sliding of the barn door’s opening, that the eye of man meets those other’s, who have heard the news, that often what is sold as wood, be-comes the more of what is worked as art....” Often now the mornings are getting colder and so I find myself coming out here earlier to start the fire in the belly of my beast, as I prepare the tools that the ‘old timer’ will be using today. Tools come in many forms shapes a...

Part 9: "The Passion of Wood"

The Passion of Wood How splendiferous is my joy at writing, as I sit here in the mornings, be-fore the sun has had a chance to display a magnificence of splaying rays. This is when by writing with pen and paper, ‘the why’, concerning my medicine of ink is flowing best and the images of imagination take on their body of words. This is when I rise above the cathedrals and temples built by hands of men//women and soar into the rapturous volumes of an opened heavens delight. Storie...
