"Life is a birch"

Have you ever paused to take in the aged-brass bark of a yellow birch, or the hand-sized bark plates on a big white pine?

Bark is beautiful. And practical. A protective tissue, a defense against insects, fungi, fire, and deer, it has a lot in common with human skin..

This is why I was inspired to create the "Life is a birch" series...

After being burned and going through my own skin "transformation" I learned to stand proud and love my new skin.. just like the trees that stand proud in their overcoats. .
