Friday Shoot Out- The Old Druid


The most widespread view is that "druid" derives from the Celtic word for an oak tree (doire in Irish Gaelic), a word whose root also meant "wisdom."


"...and I am here too, in front of it, hardly able to see for the flash and the brightness.


and sometimes I am that madcap person
clapping my hands and singing;
and sometimes....
I am that quiet person down on my knees."~mary oliver~

  7. I love old trees and the stories they must hold. My art instructor does the most beautiful drawings of trees. He is working on a series of drawings of the Angel Oak in Charleston right now.
