the mission

To provide a forum for the intersection of spirit and art - a place to share what creations we must manifest to continue living in a meaningful way.


I'm open to what develops here - poetry, fiction, non-fiction, images, videos, quotes, insight - mainly looking at this blog as a record or shared diary in a spirit of playfulness and inspiration....mental froth, mind's eye materialization, and life songs lost and found.

Tree Man

Camping last weekend in the Abraham Lake Valley, a beautiful riverside setting at the edge of Rocky mountains - commonly used in days old by the Natives for vision quests - I was enjoying a couple beers by the campfire, listening to the river flow, marvelling at the stars - when I heard a ruckus from the woods. Bursting forth from the darkness came stumbling a creature/person groaning and snorting - I fell back and grabbed my camera from my jacket pocket - and snapped away. I don't know what it was - some kind of treeman - with branches growing from his body - he just stood there yelling incomprehensibly gesturing wildly - as if he was trying to communicate something. And then he was gone.

If I didn't have the picture proof - I would have written it off as a dream.

But for these pictures, TreeMan left nothing behind but questions: What was TreeMan.....and what did he want???
