I have never seen anything like that. I'm really amazed. Forgive my ignorance, but does that really happen all by itself?

I LOVE the
scrolled back peek
into the next

Mary said...

hmmm, God must have wanted it posted now!! :)

can't wait to see what unfolds!! :)

Rachel, wanted to tell you I received your beautiful print. I am gonna have it matted and framed!!!

Lori said...

That is pretty cool that it needed to show up now. But all I can think of is that you are so far ahead in posts that you are into 2011? omg. You HAVE to tell me how you do that!

rachel awes said...

ohhhh, lori (& all!).
i'm not all posted up to 2011!
i was simply flipping a couple posts
to the next year...wanting to wait on them...
as i was thinking up a little change in structure here (see this coming mon's post).

& gyspysticks (& all!),
i just found the tree looking like this...
so i was thinking it happened on its' own...
hmmm.
xoxox!!

Lori said...

*phew!* I was going to say- In October I would like you to give a presentation on time management! lol

Looking forward to seeing your post on Monday...

HUGS to you!

ally pye said...

Beautiful! Nature is amazing, it never fails to renew my sense of hope!I just saw you are a psychologist, I am going through my last year of grad school to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. Do you use art in your practice? Also, reading that you are a "Harold and the Purple Crayon" fan made me smile BIG! Have a good day!

Hello! I have always loved white birch trees, especially in the snowy winter time when you can see all of the subtle color in their bark. When I saw the post date I thought that it was something intentional with hidden meaning, the two trees standing as number 11 and the roll of bark reminding me of a scroll...as the book of your life. See. my mind was trying to make sense of it, and then you posted that it was a happy accident. I love that!! Wonderful blog and work too!! xo

elizabeth said...

Oh! It looks like a book!

Also, cool. We skipped the last quarter of 2010! ;)

naomi orana said...

I'm glad to see that someone else is technically challenged at times. They are beautiful images xo

Bella Sinclair said...

Well, I'm glad this posted anyway, because it's an awesome photo. Wow, I never knew it was so dark under that top layer. How fascinating, the way it's all peeled back!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Suz said...
