“from her heart grows a tree”

Are you ready to participate in an experiment?

I’m currently reading The Book of Trees: Visualizing Branches of Knowledge By Manuel Lima

While reading it a phrase popped in my head, “from her heart grows a tree”

I did a search of the phrase and there were 0 search results. How often does that happen!?!?! With all the data we have put out here on the internet, the search engine couldn’t even offer a guess!

So let’s play.

With this blog post I have created the “trunk”

Now its your turn to add a branch. On your own blog use the phrase including the quotations:

“from her heart grows a tree”

Let’s see how many branches we can get by this time next week.

And so, from my heart grows a tree.

The Book of Trees

DEADLINE TO PARTICIPATE: AUGUST 2, 2021 Midnight (PST)

“Branches”: A post on your website/blog anything that includes “from her heart grows a tree” (A poem, a short story, a couple of sentences, a picture with the phrase as the title….)

“Roots”: Post your contribution in the comments below. For anyone who wants to participate that doesn’t have a blog or doesn’t feel like posting it on their blog.

Why is there a deadline?

So I can make a visual tree(s) of your contributions. Depending on how much input I have to work with I might make one fancy tree or a few experimental trees. I go with the flow with where ever the inspiration takes me!

I will *try* to have the project done the following week (Aug 9th-13th) for you all, see note below.

Note: I’ve been notified of potential Jury Duty. I should know if I’m selected as a potential Juror on Aug 2nd. If I’m selected I’ll have a civil and legal obligation to participate which could take up to two weeks or longer depending on the court case. If selected, I won’t be able to talk about it. I don’t yet know what the time commitment is like or how it will impact my schedule, but August was already stacking up to be a very busy month. We’ll see how it goes.

    1. I’m looking forward to it! Haikus have been my favorite style of poetry since I played “Ghost of Tsushima”, where one element of the game was sitting in spots and building haiku from a few possible phrases. You also get to pet foxes. I love foxes!

  1. Just a quick note: You’re “branch” (post) might not show up depending on your site settings. If you don’t allow “Search Engine Indexing” it likely won’t show up.

    We’ll say it’s part of the experiment! I don’t expect anyone to change their site settings just for this. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Prapti! Please let me know if you choose to participate! Add a “branch” by using the phrase on you blog, or add a “root” by adding something with the phrase here in the comment section.

  2. The Family Tree is among the most wonderful images of trees; how people are connected over generations. Certainly not the beginning of my family tree – yet, a long time ago, Barnebus Maney, Captain during the Revolution – father of 12 children was the beginning. I (and you and Joshua and Noah) are related to more people than you can imagine. Like a tree – we grow branches. Like a tree, we grow new branches – each one making us stronger. I love the connections.

  3. Thank you to everyone that participated! I will get to work on the visualization tree asap! I was not selected to be a Juror so I hope to post the tree for you no later than this weekend. Thanks again!
