The river rises and falls and covers the tree trunks and everything else with a brown sediment. The lichen, moss and other plants grow in every crevice where that rich sediment has been deposited on the trees. That’s why you always get a sort of shaggy appearance on the trunks of the trees but not in the branches of the tops of the trees. Only recent rains or recent floods wash things to a clean surface as seen on  the log in that kind of bark-less smoothness.  ( no leaves, no other debris on the log..) The water and sediment weathers and etches  the wood the same way water weathers stones smooth.

Our eyes are naturally drawn to the unusual shape or texture in the landscape we occupy. The other shapes are not unimportant. They are  not the alphabet of something being tooled and managed by human means (plus) we are used to.

Deep woods are a place to get lost in and think completely different things than the everyday stick figure ideology coming from all sides.

Psalm 31:19,20  Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!  Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
