Ok, this is a cool synch as I am going to Arcata next week. Have not been there is weeks and never worked there like we will be doing next week. You must have picked up on that as the messages for both Arcata and Eureka are on my voice mail right now. They have a new manager there and I have been asked to go do Arcata and Eureka. We love the little meeting place in the Square there in Arcata. We have not been that far north in a long time. Will probably go through the "Avenue of the Giants".

How cool is that, Mr. Tree?!!! How exciting for you guys! I hope you enjoy yourselves thoroughly (which you always do!... being YOU and all). Wink

Take lots of digi-snaps to post for us to see. I have always wanted to see the giant trees. I cannot even imagine what it must feel like to be in the presence of one of those trees! "Awesome" can't possibly cover it!

Cool Have a safe and glorious trip!

Many other thngs are lining up for this trip like others calling fron the area without knowing we are going up there. And we plan on going to the Avenue of the Giants where we had a wonderful time many years ago and the Woman's Grove actually has a water fountain dedicated to women that was dedicated on my mother's birthday.


I was walking and dreaming of how a tree sees.

YOU, my life are my sight. I don't need eyes because I trust what YOU give to me that it is what I need to see.

This is actually the way it is with all the senses and the evolution of creatures.

The Most Famous Tree in Arcata

This is a photo album of the Area up there where we are going. We plan on leaving tommorrow/ Tuesday.

I have intended that many synchs relative to all our experience occur on this trip.

Keep us in Your thoughts and that we might synch with You all on the way.

Traveled up through there all through the coastal redwoods to the top of Oregon back in 'ought '78. Tent camping with my ex and my two babies - who were something like 6 and 2 at the time.

Fabulous trip. Camping in the shadow of and playing inside many of the beautiful trees. The children and I danced around and through them and tightrope walked a fallen one then lay down on top of it with a mossy cover beneath our bodies and the sun peeking down from the branches which touched the sky.

I remember the sea lion caves in Oregon and the rocky coast. Also a spot in Big Sur where a waterfall poured down high flowery cliffs onto a sandy beach to flow into the tide and join the sea.

At the top of Oregon we swung inland and came down through the line of volcanoes - I remember the fumeroles on Mount Lassen, and it was driving down from the summit of that volcano at dusk that a pair of timber wolves crossed our path - stopped the car to watch them - one of those moments where the quality of light and air seemed to shimmer in a timeless way defying dimension and the forest grew VERY quiet - they passed with a swish - like the breath of gods. Beautiful and magical creatures, so light they were almost white with an aura of great power about them as they loped out of sight.

Back in civilization we were picnicking at the La Brea Tar Pits - my favorite spot in L.A. - and noticed a long line going into the art museum next door. Curiously, asked a guy what the line was for - and he said it was for the King Tut exhibit. He was one of those people for whom instant gratification takes too long and was extremely pissed that he had to wait in line so he gave us his two tickets - free. We had tried to get tickets to this tour many months before in San Diego where we lived, but they were all sold out. So we happily waited in line and saw that phenomenal exhibit.

See - the first time the Tut collection went on tour it was all Tut - AND included the famous golden mask. It was breathtaking. This go-around they had only a few artifacts from Tutankamen and others from other tombs - beautiful stuff - but not quite the same.

Almost 30 years later my then pregnant daughter (the 6-year-old in 1978) and I found ourselves in the Cairo museum - where the entire Tut collection is housed on its own floor. She remembered many of the pieces and we discovered delightful and wonderful things that had not made either tour - such as the chariots. Hoo doggy they were cool.

Anyway, back to the Avenue of the Giants - we spent about three days just among those trees. About 10 years later I camped with my two daughters as a single parent farther inland at Sequoia and got to experience those gorgeous trees as well. A different species of redwood and simply magnificent.

And then one time my young daughters and I camped at Big Basin State Park where our tent was in the center of a circle of giants. The trees provided such privacy that it was like we were the only people in the world. In the night moonbeams poured down through the open space in the center of the trees on our campsite. Then when the moon set I lay on the ground and looked up at galaxies and shooting stars. Very magical indeed. And a good time was had by all.

The redwoods take root in your soul and never leave you. They are a great blessing to experience and I am very grateful to have gotten to sleep in their shadow on these occasions. It did my old Druid heart a world of good.

Oh yeah - the Monterey aquarium has the most amazing collection of jellyfish I've ever seen - they're gorgeous.

Also you can pet rays.

Santa Cruz turned out to be a great hit on this trip. I have never seen the beach so busy. We were drug off the street into a free comedy club experience and it turned out to be great although we found out half way through it that it was a gay bar and all we spent in two hours was 5 dollars there. We were cracking up at the last guy on, he was so funny.

That would be Julia pfeiffer waterfall, yes we love going up to the old home spot and we often just stay there and write.



I have to process the pics in my camera and then I will have some experiences to share as well.

We began having synchs with Priscilla as our breakfast waitress was Priscilla and a boat later had that name. We felt it was a synch about a boat coming to us like the name Rebecca was a car that came to me once.

As You can see I had many synchs with sailing on this trip as I was wearing a shirt with sailing boats and the lazer sailing club was out on the water and the Bounty of course was the ship we toured.


We went aboard this ship and got to speak with folks onboard about growing up on a ship and gave them our card.



We had a wonderful synch with waves coming into a pool and then draining I will do a drawing about what I was experiencing while dreaming by the water in Monterey.

That place changes with the seasons but it is very beautiful and a wonderful hideaway. Here is another view of it. Pam and I have some pics but they are not as nice as I found here because we used my cheap camera the last time.

Bummer! I'm on the hospital computer and it won't allow me to access that pic's URL (the image wouldn't even show up in the post!)

Silly computer restrictions!!!

I'll look later.

But seriously, Mr. Tree, I lived in Hawaii and that place almost has Hawaii beat!!!

SOOOOOOO glorious!!! XOXOO

Yes - that's the falls I spoke of. In Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park area. That shot is taken from the cliffs where there is a marvelous, very expensive restaurant called Nepenthe. The camp grounds are just down the road.

Under the Old DNA Tree


These were a series of drawings I made for my brother back in 2007 titled "Under the Old DNA Tree". The premise was nothing more than creating a fictional landscape revolving around a wise old tree. Why a DNA tree? The allusion could be to that of the biblical Tree of Life, being in the center of the garden and all things new being created around it, or the tree can be symbolic of God Himself in the form of a tree, bringing strange new life to the land around Him. Whatever your interpretation, it is meant to appear almost as though it came from a dream... whether nice dream or nightmare I suppose is up to the viewer.

Or maybe it doesn't come off as dreamy, maybe it's just weird. If there's one thing I learned in my 5 years at UMass, it's that NOBODY will interpret your artwork the way you intended. I mean nobody. You draw a tree, they see a cow, you draw a donkey, they see a democrat. Or maybe art just wasn't my calling.

The interesting thing about this piece is that all the animals were just sketches that had been floating around in my notebook for about 3 years, all I did was scan them and color them. So I guess you can say I whipped them together last minute, or that I spent three years working on these prints... I prefer the latter.

This was the first time I really utilized my wacom tablet as well. I typically just scan and color in Illustrator/Photoshop using the fill tool and the select tool. This time, however, I scanned and used the wacom to give it a more sketched out feel, focusing on more detail than simple shadows and solids. I was pleased with the end result.
