Quiet Passage

How is it that something so jagged and rough can also be calming and soothing? When I look at this image, I am surprised to have an immediate sense of peacefulness as the peeling bark draws me in and gently nudges me forward. It feels to me like this is a quiet passage into winter.

Pin It


  1. It's the the bark is pointing us to where the snow will being coming...I love this! I can almost feel the bumpy texture if I think hard enough! :)

  2. Thanks Sheri!! Hopefully the snow won't come too quickly, no matter how gently we are pointed in its direction. :)

  3. Peeling seems, in itself, symbolic.
    Isn't it interesting, how we think of one season in relation to another...
