So what if you have everything you want in the world but then lose your soul.
Learn of Me , for I am meek and humble and you will find rest …Mark 8 : 36 , Matthew 11 : 30 ( Sandy’s understanding)
One skeleton - leaf
Delicately ribbed in brown
A skeleton leaf caught between the lives of a hedge and its tree
Picked up by me and carefully placed in a photo album.
Xylems yes, ridgid yes, but
No water flows from roots through leaves .
Phloem tubes soft and gone
carried sugar up and down
built the protective, ridgid,supportive skeleton of the leaf.
Work all done!
The skeleton - leaf just as it is and was 40years ago!
Rigid, the skeleton of habit alone upholds the human frame.Virginia Wolf England 1882-1941
Virginia Wolf started writing in 1900. Her father was the one who encouraged her but then he died in 1904. In 1912 she married and her and her husband founded Hogarth Press which published most of her novels. Sadly she lived with what we would call bipolar disorder. There were no medicines at that time and her sadness at one time lead to a short life of 59 years.
Strip the book back to find the skelton. When you have found the skeleton – that is what you trust- you reclothe.David Farr (British writer ,theatrical director of the Royal Shakespeare company.)
Word books traditionally focus on unusual and quirky items. They tend to ignore the words that provide the skeleton of the language, without which it would fall apart, such as ‘and’ and ‘what’ or words that provide structure to our conversations such as ‘ hello’.David Crystal ( 1941 A British linguist , academic , prolific author best known for his works on linguistics and the English language.)

interesting! Where did you pick up that leaf?
I think it must have been in the Great Park Windsor. I wonder what tree it is from.
What a wonderful post. I love how you weaved everything around the beautiful discovery of that skeletal leaf. It’s a remarkable find.
Yes, I wish I knew the name of the tree. Thank you for liking the weave.
