i'm looking at specific places that i can document. Photograph and re photograph as the Season circles on and around. This is one of the trunks of the Morning Tree community of Live Oaks. This particular small space, was a dusty brown. Bark looking for the last months. I can't tell you what it looked like when i arrived in December last year...i didn't know to look yet, didn't recognize it to become what is now my Morning Tree. and for the rest of the Rain Season, things were a blur for me. But i have found my feet. Some. Enough. and i looked out this morning and there was a different world. The soft green. As i said, They Say that Rain Season begins in October. It did. October 1st. just a little. October 2nd. same October 3rd Some, October 4th a LOT. and that transformation has begun. It's Intense and Fierce. Lichen. Moss. The WORLD of Lichen and Moss....that are so much major and critical players in the drama of this forest, the dance of this forest Hill.
