The trees have always been my friends – benevolent giants reaching from the Earth, arms extended, fingers stretched to their fullest receptivity, as they serve to ground the highest energy of the Divine down to Earth, where we need it.
Back when I was a kid feeling the pressure of playing competitive high school tennis, I would tell myself, “Draw your strength from the tree tops.” It was my mantra before I knew what mantras even were, a way to refuel and recharge my inner battery and calm myself down. Before long, it became such a practice for me that I simply heard it as a voice in my head. In addition to praying to God, I faithfully followed this inner directive whenever times got tough.
The interconnectedness, support, wisdom and love of trees is here for all of us, wherever we are on the planet. This body of work sets an intention, an energetic frequency, for each viewer to tune ‘into’ in his or her own unique way. It is my hope that I have used this blessed vehicle of art/creation to assist on an invisible level in each being’s unfoldment, development, and recalibration to the primordial sacred power of LOVE within.
Furthermore, it is my hope that this work offers the viewer assistance in finding the peace that resides eternally in the light; and from that wellspring, moving forward with the passionate love of the Divine Feminine – that fierce love of the Mother, who will not abandon any of her children – so that we might move forward in activism of all kinds, in whatever particular form that takes for each one of us, while always feeling tethered through that umbilical cord back to Father God, who is our original life force.
And as we balance the LOVE of the feminine with the LIGHT of the masculine, we are fueled forward to do what is needed to heal this Earth.
