Vision Trees

Call for Submissions: Festival of the Trees 60

On my walk this afternoon, a tree, whose energy is perhaps conveyed by this image, with whom I feel a strong magnetic pull each time I pass. This tree played a part in my coming to live on the street you see here, I am sure. I'll relate the story in my post for the Festival.
Do you have a vision tree?

Is there a tree, a tree who calls to you? Whose rhythms speak to you deeply. Whose energy resonates with yours. Is there a tree who has inspired you in your life, your spirituality, art, relationships, body? Remember this tree, the vision of this tree, whenever it was, or go there now, rest against the bark, listen.

Can you record this feeling, conversation, vision in writing, art, photography, video? Please share your vision here, at the Festival of the Trees.

If you're inspired, write, paint, compose, perform your communion with a tree or trees, post in your blog, or Picasa or Flikr , or YouTube or Vimeo, or SoundCloud or Jamendo, wherever you hang your on-line hat, and send me the link, and I'll include it in the round-up on Festival Day!

    I'll be here. Just wait for the 1st June. Trees and nature both attracted me very well. I love them. They are my heart. And this type of festival feels me pleasure. And thanks for your post as well as informing me.

  2. Brenda, I feel bad about not participating in this but I've been beset by a bunch of minor emergencies that have taken all my attention and my time.

  3. Beautiful, Shahrin - the Festival is up now:

    I hope you enjoy perusing it as much as I did compiling and composing it!

  4. Sherry, thank you for your note, and I hope everything is okay -life's emergencies beset us all from time to time.

    If, though, once things settle a bit, you find yourself still drawn to the theme and do compose a piece, and it would be totally cool if you tried some video, send the link along and I will add it to the essay.

    Or simply enjoy this month's FOTT -there are some delectable offerings!

    I could not participate there. But I hope it was the best festival of my life I missed. I am a true lover of nature and trees. And the trees attract me always.

  6. Hi Shahrin, oh how lovely and of course you can always contribute to Festival of the Trees since it's a monthly event, going into its 5th year now. It is hosted at a different blog each month. Just check the website to see where to send your link. (I subscribe to it via Google Reader, so that makes it easy.)

    For instance, a post simply on how much to you love nature and trees is perfect!

    This types of festival is so much pleasure and interesting for me. Because I love trees and nature. Tree is the main element of our nature. Thanks for the post. I love this festival.
