Doth not the ear try words?...With the ancient is wisdom ; and in length of days understanding...
Job 12:11-12

This tree is over 100 years old and if it could talk, I wonder what it would say. Through the years it formed the shape of a big ear on its trunk and I would presume it is a good listener...If I were a tree for a day I would listen to the birds sing their songs, the rustle of the wind blowing, the deer munching apples that fell on the ground off this very tree..the sounds of squirrels that may have stored nuts in this tree..Nature is never silent for ears that hear its music.
I can hardly believe I am on day 300 of my daily diary series..and only 65 days left to the end. I want to thank all of my friends who so patiently saw me through this from the beginning...

    Thank you everyone...Yes, Betty I was really freezing. I tried to do this self portrait without wearing the jacket but

    at 48 degrees I put it back on...Yet can't complain because we have had a nice November so far.

    It looks as if you are climbing the tree Andrea! I love this one!! It has been so much fun watching you these past 300 days. I think I might actually miss this theme when we are finished with it. It has been a challenge but a fun one. I think it would be great to be a tree but standing outside when it is lightening would be a huge drawback. LOL!!!

    I too want to say Congratulatins on almost comleting this Sp task. I don't think I could have done it. This particular shot is exceptional.I think the tesxure of the EAR on the tree and your vibrant red coat combine perfectly!

    I like the jacket, Andrea. It gives us an idea of how cold it was. I love that tree. It is the perfect prop for your SP today. Beautifully done, as always.

    What an interesting tree. I too would like to be listening to the sounds of nature if I was a tree. This is a great SP, I love the color of your jacket, it looks very nice on you. In some ways I will miss doing this theme, I have learned so much from doing it and have enjoyed watching others that are doing it also, it has definitely been interesting!
