“Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed — chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones. .” — John Muir
Thank you for your positive feedback on the post, In Celebration of Trees! The tree theme continues with a rollback to last March when my friend Barbara helped with improving the trails. We selected many nature-related quotes then had fun painting signs on rainy days.
Here are photos from last year’s signs:
“Hummingbird teaches us to transcend time, to recognize that what has happened in the past and what might happen in the future is not nearly as important as what we are experiencing now. It teaches us to hover in the moment, to appreciate its sweetness.” – Constance Barrett Sohodski
Barbara/aka Hummingbird not only helped with painting signs; she also helped transform some of the trails.
Before selecting a board for the John Muir quote, I tossed around ideas for illustrating the message then decided that a board was too small. It deserved to be a more-serious work of art.
