Well, last night we had a unusually strong thunderstorm (with a tornado
watch). The wind ripped off a 12" diameter,15' bough from my green ash.
Miraculously, it didn't land on my car or my house but was oddly cradled by
the green ash itself and a honeysuckle bush --like a person might hold a
I found the celtic poem which names the trees associated with Gwydion and
the Ogham. I put it out on my website. I haven't done much work on the
site, I've just put the stuff out there than didn't email well. It's at:
Here's my take on crystals vs trees. I think crystals are easier to work
with because the crystal spirits are eager to raise up and communicate with
the evolutionarily higher human energies (like some on this list are
anxious to communicate with masters or aliens). I don't think trees feel
this need and may not even recognize us as higher energies, so they're less
inclined to communicate. I think that most trees just consider us to be
especially dangerous pests, much more dangerous than insects.
