cocktails, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

sitting on the edge of the bed listening to the wind this morning we marvelled at the trees bending and blowing in the wind...wise grey bare and old they moved and we wondered...do trees smile in the wind?

I think they do...Nita was right if you think about it...most of the time they are pretty still..so is this play for them? and i mean the wind was whipping all night long..50-60 mph gusts easily...it must feel good to sway and dance and move with the wind. Like a brush through a childs hair maybe? Or maybe it makes them feel wild and free and gets the funk out...you know, it helps clean them out a bit.


Trees outlive us.
They are always growing.
Sometimes they break.
They help us breathe.
Squirrels like them.
Birds like them.
Hammocks can hang between them.
They whistle.
They creak.
They have leaves during the spring.
They can be hundreds of years old.
Dogs pee on them.
They die.
They get sick.
They see things we will never see.
They feed fires.
They build houses.
They built planes and boats.
They have built bridges.
Bows and Arrows.
Wooden spoons.
Wooden bowls.

I like trees...so anyway...i think the trees are smiling today and having fun.

Love and Understanding.

i love laying on the ground and looking up into the trees blowing in the wind. It's the most relaxing thing I know.
