There Are Kingdoms and Reaches

far more than we know.  There is a world within our world where magic lives by many names and coexists with the ordinary. A few glimpse it and sense it around them in Nature's Realm.

Every tree has its Dryad and each Dryad has its dragon/tree.  It is a special relationship. One cannot exist without the other.  If one should die, the other will too.

Sometimes an ordinary moment with extraordinary power can bring back the Dryad's music and lift the dragon's wings so they may live again.  Few are fortunate to witness this re-birthing.

Many may remember the discoverythe imagining and the journey.  Who knew it would take me so long!

Presenting the rebirth of a tree dragon and her Hamadryad living again in my heart and my yard.
She may change as she tells me
but for my birthday she is poised for flight.

May we celebrate the magic and beauty around us
and always feed our imagination.

Creating is a natural part of your being . . .

Happy Birthday dear girl . . .

she looks good to me and you will laugh your head off when you see my post... it is titled Fangtastic Dragon... your dragon tree has a story to tell and you told it so well.

Beautiful! You 'see' some incredible things. And you make them happen.

This is so very creative and imaginative. I love old folklore and legends. I look forward to Her revealing more to you! Happy Birthday, dear friend! I am glad you have a special way to celebrate it, too.

I see many things in this tree. Especially on the left, where it looks like a creature eating grass. She is alive?? I hope she keeps growing and growing, and is a home to many.

Boy, I wasn't even close. That is something you could study for days and still see something different. She has found the right home.
Happy Birthday and year. May both be splendid.

I see the smile and the eye in the first picture.
A belated Happy Birthday here. I hope you had a wonderful day, Gail.
And I hope you all have a blessed week.

What a wonderful and challenging piece of work. I love every inch of her. The gnarled hand/paw got my attention right away - the eye also. I love it. Also, a most happy Belated Birthday Wish. What a great spirit you have in re-inventing and rebirth.

You were born with the gift of seeing the magic in your surroundings, the spirit in all created things. This is lovely, it makes me smile! I hope you had a truly happy birthday, although we don't much enjoy the advancing years, the mellowing that comes with them is welcome. Sending you much love today and everyday! I am just now catching up on posts I missed while we were away visiting with my son.
