Three-Eyed Tree Lizard

If trees had eyes on the tops of their highest branches, they would find that every year they can see farther than they had in the years previous. Their perceptions of the world around them would change with their vantage points. A life that once consisted of nothing more than dirt, grass and the shadows from other trees, would soon become one of endless sky, breezy air, and sunlight. The more the trees grow, the more they understand their place in the world. But, with these new insights obtained over decades, the trees would always have their roots to remind them of how they came to be. No matter how high a tree might get, it could always look down at its feet and remember when it was a mere sapling. If the sun one day became too hot, the tree could look down at the place where it ceased being a seed and remember how much it craved the vibrant UV's it now wishes to avoid.  A greater appreciation for its situation is what this tree would gain. 

Liz Kingsbury is the type of person who inspires people (such as myself) to write such things. Her work reflects this idea of staying centered, staying rooted. I think of her work when I find my large, hulking feet straying off course and somehow it always manages to help me return to my chosen path. I am grateful for having the ability to say with truth and pride, that Liz Kingsbury is my friend. I am excited to have the opportunity to present her work to you.
