    Michael, I find the symbol very moving. You have shown it before and may I ask where did you find it?

      Actually a friend offered that to me originally, but I think it’s Hermetic in nature, which—before that—has some roots in the Vedic world. Beyond that I don’t know!
      I think about it often– has some broad ‘applicability’…

    Aside from all the associations with the inner and outer life of a human, it works well to describe roots and foliage. Fine-grained soil, fine roots -> fine twigs.

    It does seem old, tribal maybe but yes, Hermetic fits. I thought possibly a new grafic by an artist friend. Whateva, I just LIKE. As a bonsai enthusiast it speaks of a connection to more than a potted plant.

      Yes, that Hermetic view was pretty interesting stuff, very inclusive, somewhat modern for its time, one of those I’ve always wanted to investigate out of pure curiosity. tattoo is a great idea! just make sure no weirdo copyrighter makes claim to your skin, then…
