Leaning House of God (Trees Bend to the Light)


Source: Nicholson, George The Illustrated Dictionary of Gardening, Div. VI (London, England: L. Upcott Gill, 1884)

Some species require the shock of sudden darkness to go into bloom. Some don’t like direct sun. I feed my orchids ice cubes each week, to regulate their intake. They look dead certain times of the year, then bounce back one day with new blooms.

It’s the force of wind that strengthens trees: resistance training for the core.

Let it be so for your art: take strife, make new patterns, colors, sounds. Make music from the wind. Bend, bloom.
