London Art Fair 2017

 The London Art fair opens tomorrow and is on until January the 22nd.  'The Scots Pine' will be there!  In the Crane Kalman booth. For sale.  It is a portrait of a tree I know well on the outskirts of Wytham woods in Oxford.  Lost       A native American Elder was asked,    “What shall we do if we get lost?”   Stand still.  The trees before you and the bushes beside you are not lost.  Wherever you are is a place called here,  and you must treat it as a powerful stranger  both asking to know and be known.  Listen.  The forest whispers,  “I have made this place, you can leave and return once again  saying, here.”  No two trees are the same to Raven,  no two branches the same to Wren.  If what a tree or a branch does is lost on you,  you are truly lost.  Stand still.  Listen.  The forest knows where you are.  Let it find you.   by David Wagoner

Lost  

A native American Elder was asked,

“What shall we do if we get lost?”

Stand still.  The trees before you and the bushes beside you are not lost.

Wherever you are is a place called here,

and you must treat it as a powerful stranger

both asking to know and be known.

Listen.  The forest whispers,

“I have made this place, you can leave and return once again

saying, here.”

No two trees are the same to Raven,

no two branches the same to Wren.

If what a tree or a branch does is lost on you,

you are truly lost.

Stand still.  Listen.

The forest knows where you are.

Let it find you.
