"Old Soul" by Cari Sample Malver Winner of Judges' Choice Award at Intermountain Weavers Conference in Durango, CO in 2013. Oh, what a tree can teach us! It is deeply rooted in ancient wisdom while steadfastly reaching upwards to the heavens in search of light. The tree offers oxygen for the very breath of life; shelter for our bodies and beauty for our souls. It gives song to the wind and sways in its dance of life.
