Medicine for a too fast life

Arborsculpture is therapeutic, a garden art that snares the artist, first into looking at trees, then touching trees and finally into designing and nurturing trees. Along the way patients and her illusionary mother time are pulled out by there roots and added to the compost pile, destine to become some future now's fertilizer.
The entry price to practicing this art is to check your speed at the garden gate and enter the slow motion world of tree time. A place where your own
thoughts are as loud as the wind in the leaves. Where the tortoise nature of the trees creeps up from behind and beats the hell out of your hare nature. But its all in good sport and the lessons are invaluable.
