Every Thought Is A Seed

My grandmother always had the perfect tree in her yard for climbing and it was one tree I could get very high up in quite easily, but I always remember coming down with sap all over my hands that wouldn't wash off for days but made every touch slightly sticky. That anecdote rather sums of my tree climbing experiences; better in anticipation than actuality. Kate helped me take these photographs and I think she got a kick out of me testing the tree's strength before I actually dared climb out on the limb. This crab-apple tree was more idyllic than my childhood memories of tree climbing--I didn't get very far off the ground, but it was the perfect shape to lay against and I emerged without spider bites or sap-covered appendages.

P.S. The last picture is of my roommate Kate--one of the lovely ladies I live with now and the kind soul who helped me take these pictures.

  1. Beautiful pictures! I too have found memories of tree climbing and gallavanting about the forest in my childhood, and swimming in clear water lakes. The daydream is much better than the reality as mine too resulted in bites, and scabs, and all kinds of evidence of my activities. But that's the nice thing about memories - we can remember what we desire.

  3. I just love that first photo. It reminds me of Johnny Appleseed! And I agree with you on how tree-climbing always seems better in anticipation. I usually get halfway up the tree and start freaking out, climbing neither up nor down in fear of falling and breaking a limb!

  5. The pictures look devine. Like a perfect summer day should look like. Did I spy one of the lovely abandoned barn in the background of the picture of your roommate?

  11. where are the simple ballet flats (bona drag, top shop) you used to wear. the classic lines of those were beautiful on you?

  12. @Anonymous, I wore holes in my favorite flats and haven't found any replacements I like yet. But since living in VA and now having 90+ degree weather--open toed shoes (ie sandals) are more sensible.
