~ Beginnings are Delicate Things ~
There’s an old craftsperson axiom that goes, ‘If you have problems at the end it’s probably because of something you did at the beginning’.
This past year I’ve shared a series of posts about early tree development. If there is one overarching, umbrella statement we can make regarding the early phase of bonsai creation—both deciduous and conifer—it would be that axiom.
But there’s good news, too. We have a little more wiggle room than those working in other media, because our medium is growing. Some corrections can be made that you might not be able to make if, say, you are carving a wooden filigree and your chisel stroke goes awry.
Take care at the beginning.
Blessings, everyone, for a Happy New Year ~
Wishing everyone health and prosperity this holiday season and beyond!
