the Story of Bur Oak
I salvage dead and dying trees from the creeks that surround my home town. The Kansas Burr Oak grows slowly (more) and has been growing for centuries. The typical life span is 180 to 200 years. I know this by having counted the annual rings of the dead and fallen Oak trees.
These very trees, the ones I touch, the ones that help create your furnishings saw the Buffalo roaming. They saw the Plains Indians, the TRUE natives of our land, and they saw white man come. As I touch this wood and ponder on all that, how short time becomes. 200 years becomes yesterday. Yesterday, there was nothing here except the prairie, buffalo, the Indians, and the wind. Oh my, I think, what have we done.
