Families of Nature Beings

Families of Nature Beings

Green Men Personalities

Green Men Personalities

Green men and green women are real life forms. I frequently encounter them in the woods when I go exploring for communicative trees. As in all relationships, interactions depend upon the meeting of two personalities. In my case, interactions are warm, friendly,...
Greenmen

Greenmen

Once the word gets about the woodland that you take photos of tree spirits, a walkabout can be very noisy! “Take a photo of me!” “Over here!” For a long while it seemed every tree wanting their picture taken had a bear image in it – bear...

I was out photographing in a local park, and much admiring the large roots and complex arrangements of a magnificent old tree. It stood next to a playground, and children were always climbing over, under and around it. It was dusk, and the children had all gone home....
The Greenmen

The Greenmen

I work with the Greenmen. Would you like to see what they look like? You can. It is as simple as turning a kaleidoscope – this one of frequency and this scope exists inside your head. Just shift your point of view…and an entire new picture of existence...
The Self-Offering of Trees and Rocks

The Self-Offering of Trees and Rocks

Our Earth is  a wonder of self-offering. In movies, and stories of our human heroes, we often describe and marvel at the self-offering of the heroes who sacrifice themselves for the sake of the whole – the soldier who volunteers to serve his country so that...

These are a few of my favorite things
