Standing beneath the outstretched arms of the very old coastal oak affectionately named Angel Oak, I could tell that I was being affected. But not in a way that I could readily acknowledge nor put to words, since the feeling was so subtle as to be almost imperceptible. Over the years since, as I sat quietly in meditation, my feelings would occasionally return to those moments within the shade of Angel Oak. Ever so gradually, my sense of her message began to percolate into my awareness and I penned a little poem to encompass that. Still later, I felt to attempt to imagine and then to create imagery that might hope to illustrate the benevolent creative intelligence that must have left its enigmatic message within the substance of that tree. The first image, Avalon was the culmination of my process. The second image, that of Avalon II, was what I arrived as I imaged how this benevolence might formulate an earthly embodiment of itself. In this second image, the Mother Aspect is depicted in a completion of that embodying process. The Father Aspect is almost fully formed, with the legs of the elk as the last portion to come forth. I trust that you can appreciate that these metaphors cannot hope to truly approximate the grandeur of that which they attempt to describe.
