From my chum Anne Brannen.
Translating Robert Graves’ Celtic Tree Alphabet into a localized form for the New Mexico high desert. Here’s her explanation:
“My own little project has been to translate, as far as I’m able, the trees and plants native to New Mexico into the Celtic Tree pantheon. I don’t think I’m really done with this project, but it’s far enough along I’ll share it with you here. I’m focusing not so much on the trees’ place in the eco system, but the trees’ place in the human imagination. I don’t see how you can have both; I picked one.“
