today i read that a tree museum is opening in switzerland.
what a beautiful idea.
i have always regarded trees as supreme works of art.
they do so much for us.
in that spirit, meet my bonsai.
the japanese word literally means tray cultivation.
it is an ancient practice that simply sets out to grow a tree on a tray.
it is an art that requires patience, like so many good things in this life.
that virtue is one that i find especially hard to master.
in a modern world of instant gratification, waiting and slowing down can become exceedingly rare treasures.
sitting in my room one day, a shaft of light illuminated the small tree.
