Tree of Life

Olive Tree of Vouves

The Tree of Life... 
The branches reach out to the heavens 
and its roots are buried 
deep into mother earth.  
The great tree is a symbol of life, love, 
strength, wisdom and encouragement.

Death Cab for Cutie’s song Meet me at the Equinox…
A window
An opened tomb
The sun crawls
Across your bedroom
A halo
A waiting room
Your last breaths
Moving through you
As everything, everything ends...
Everything, everything, everything ends

"The affinities of all the beings of the same class have sometimes been represented by a great tree... 
As buds give rise by growth to fresh buds, and these if vigorous, branch out and overtop on all sides many a feebler branch, so by generation I believe it has been with the great Tree of Life, which fills its dead and broken branches the crust of the earth,and covers the surface with its ever branching and beautiful ramifications." 
-Charles Darwin,  1859.

Trees of Life I have created...
