Place

“Rootrill” I hope that you will forgive me for posting an eleven minute song in the twenty first century.  Mostly, I hope that you enjoy it.

Wood Fire

Lift Earth Rise , compositional sketch on guitar

Wood Fire10
small eyes wonder
Wood Fire07
A five year old little girl with a pension for the aesthetics of random objects
Wood Fire28
while carving walnut to look like earth
Wood Fire24
of the golden dust of osage
Wood Fire15
he discovers eggs make lovely lanterns
Wood Fire06
walk out to find these things from my Goldsworthy protégée
Wood Fire23
the horse rolls out, making its provision and fuel
Wood Fire18
Quercus rubra holds Quercus alba for a shave
Wood Fire19
showing how much learning is found when a draw knife pulls through the grain
Wood Fire21
and much beauty in the life of trees
Wood Fire22
yielding four legs from the rugged giant of civilization (that is Mr. Q. Alba)
Wood Fire02
back to the door. routing tongues and tenons, applying coiled energy to transferred pattern
Wood Fire03
every fit feels like a miracle
Wood Fire04
and the two become one
Wood Fire05
“Onforan” becoming a door, framing a passage
Wood Fire13
embers stirring embers
Wood Fire09
into the incense of fearless youth
Wood Fire14
a seed within a seed, life and healing travel in a mysterious shell
Wood Fire12
later, the arrangement has changed, she’s at it again
Wood Fire27
meanwhile, nature imitates nature
Wood Fire29
round violently became flat, then eases its way into concavity
Wood Fire11
green tips taken by the hoof-shod
Wood Fire25
the edges wound-up by the steel-shod
Wood Fire17
summits of pollen-yellow splendor arise from the dust
Wood Fire16
in a moment, history and beauty merge and glow
Wood Fire20
while the broad axe composes its song
Wood Fire01
as it was written in fire
Wood Fire26
as it was written in wood
