Title: Tree
Size: 40x61cm

Whether through art, science, poetry, spirit, or simply walking in the woods we connect with the world around us. In my regular walks near my home in California, we spend time in a bamboo forest for what we call tree-bathing where we literally feel resilience emerge as the oxygen pours through our veins. Where we emerge we come to a tree that was estimated to be 700 years old in the 1970s. Thinking about all the things this grand tree stood through, imagining the world around us as this tree existed then. Imagining a life well lived, standing in support of hundreds of species living together in a universe within a universe. We can learn much from the splendor of nature and the tree that gives us the continued clean air we strive for breath of a new day.
