Trees, Trees Trees Trees Trees – Tree planting is a no brainer way to ease ourselves out of the mess we have got the planet into. We need to plant millions of them! They are the guardians. I am doing my best to plant as many as I can through selling my artwork. It’s slow going but I am determined. I have ideas about how to involve other artists in tree planting projects that I am doing my best to initiate locally too. Planting as many trees as I can is my commitment for the rest of my life! Join me! If one self employed girl can, you can too!

Tendencease – Having growing tendencease towards planting and tending trees and wanting to encourage others to do the same. We must all find ways to give back instead of just taking!

U

Uniformitease – Not lines of boring sitka spruce trees please – they acidify the soil and do not support wildlife. Xmas trees are not good environmentally either. Plant hardwoods and find ways to plant a tree instead of cutting one down for your Christmasease.

Unitease – Trees hold the planet together, creating a unified field for us all to live, breathe and love in.

V

Vortexease – Feeling of satisfaction from having planted trees and knowing that by planting just one tree you have created an amazing environment that will support birds and insects and oxygenate the planet into the future.

Visionarease – Seeing in your mind’s eye what the trees will grown into in years to come, even though you may not be alive to appreciate them. This is forward and upward thinking at its best! Out of little acorns mighty oak trees grow.

Varietease – Planting a wide a variety of native trees.

To Earth We Return

To Earth We Return by Kirsten Harris

 

It takes a long time for a tree to grow, but only a short time to chop one down!

A friend from India told me that in her culture when a tree is chopped down 6 more are planted. How very wise.

 

  • A good thought is like a seed planted… ‘I let my neck be free’
  • Trust is the earth in which it grows… ‘So my head can release in a forwards & upwards direction’
  • Time works it’s magic … ‘In such a way as my back lengthens and widens’
  • We are the guardians … ‘Allowing widening across my upper arms, knees forwards and away…’

 

Feet on the ground, head in the air, heart open

 

A local farmer said to me the other day –

‘To farm well we must treat the land as though it is ours forever, even though I will only be custodian to it for a short time, I must act now for the future and look after this land.’

 

Last summer I painted huge canvases about dream seeding, painting outside in my garden, watching planes fly overhead wondering ‘Where are you going, why are you going? How could leave such beauty in search for something else?’

 

We seem to be a culture obsessed with time, time is money, hurry up, rush rush, no time right now, time for a holiday, bucket list, gotta go, what’s the time? I’m late!

 

I worry about the future of our planet when everyone is in such a hurry, consuming at high speed. How much plastic gets used on just one flight, let alone fuel? Our ancestors did not leave a horrible messy footprint on the planet, this is our recent legacy.

 

I resolved last summer to keep upping my game to the best of my ability to plant trees. Habitats for creatures, lungs for all, to earth we return …

 

So I continue to make art to plant woodlands, turning pieces of paper back into trees. That is a kind of alchemy, a desire to create magic, one artists attempt to give back to the earth.

Messages from Trees

In Nature We find Ourselves, drawing by Kirsten Harris

 

Messages from Trees

  • Breathe deeply of me I am the lungs of the world, my health and yours are one
  • Let your spine flow upwards and your limbs flow freely outwards in the sky
  • Life will shape you and sculpt you as you grow, it’s 100 percent OK to be you
  • Allow yourself to be ‘rooted’ in the earth
  • Feel your connection to all things, all life is one
  • Observe in all directions
  • The more you observe the more you will see
  • The light and seasons are always changing and you with it, you too are seasons of light
  • Though you were once but a seed you are a mighty presence and still growing
  • Be shelter and safety, warmth and home for others
  • You too are a guardian of the planet
  • Be kind, and let your kindness spread like a canopy
  • Sometimes the winds of life will be strong, you can endure
  • Transformation is inevitable
  • Find truth in being present to where you are
  • Lie on your back under my canopy and let your imagination fly
  • Trees are Life

 

I am on a tree planting mission!
