You’ll figure it out.

A few sights on the walk through Holiday Wonders.

The magnolia grooves, dancing to the beat of the heartwoods. Her limbs sweep down to touch Earth before reaching back up to Sky.

The pines are dressed for a more formal social affair it seems. There’s much underground intermingling amongst them, or so I’ve heard.

The crepe myrtle sings an operatic solo.

Magic is made.

Enjoy the season!

“The artist is always engaged in writing a detailed history of the future because he is the only person aware of the nature of the present.”

–Marshall McLuhan

Look about you at the little things that run the earth.
