In the smallest details lives the breadth of the universe. I have found that the discovery of looking closely at trees has opened me to more than just the minute details filled with beauty that surround each of us every moment of the day. They are a window to something far deeper and grander than can be expressed in words. The subtlety of form and color and texture remind me of broader patterns that stretch all the way into the cosmos. These delights are waiting for you. Enjoy.
