If you look long enough, you'll see a face!

Seriously, this one is a real contrast to the flamboyant "whipped" tree of yesterday. Do you find that trees have personalities?

In this tree (or composition),

Terry saw a dog. I still can't see it!

I think I can *almost* see the face you are talking about here.

Oh, I so absolutely find that trees have different personalities. And they never tell you their real names. That's not to say they tell a false name. But in order to know their real names one would have to be locked inside them - like what happened to Merry and Pippin. And no one wants that.

So we find content with the muted words that they speak (with beauty) of their names, which change in the speaking. Like bark and leaves. While in winter they are the least muted, and speak of their inmost rings, and you would swear they are revealing themselves, but no.

Only a chipmunk could know the real name of General Sherman.
