An Appletree Hollow painting

May 31, 1862
These are two of the members in the horn section of the
Appletree Hollow Symphony, Terry Thomas and Teresa Lewis.
Both were born and raised in Appletree Hollow. Although they
were from large families, they captured the attention of
the residents at a very early age by recreating the sounds
of nature on small homemade horns.
I am sure there must be other diary entries but all I know,
at this time,is that they started the Appletree Hollow -
"Symphony of Sounds" at the young age of 16.
I hope to find more information in one of the other diary journals.

Colorful reflections in the art district of the city.
I find it interesting how someone who is just walking along,
can unknowingly create art.

An Appletree Hollow update:

Walter (Wit)Man
May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892

The third of nine children, he was nicknamed "Walt" to distinguish him from his father, Walter Man Sr. At age four, he moved with his family from Brooklyn, living in a series of homes, in part due to his father’s bad investments. Walt looked back on his childhood as restless and unhappy, given his family's difficult economic status.
At age eleven Walt concluded formal schooling. He then sought employment for further income for his family; he was an apprentice and printer's devil for the weekly newspaper. There, he learned about the printing press and typesetting. He wrote "sentimental bits" of filler material for occasional issues.

"Lotus Blossom Lane"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas

On a recent trip to the world of "All Things Possible",I went on a
tour that took me to the edge. There, at the crossroads of
Aloha Boulevard and Lotus Blossom Lane, I found the most amazing
view and was lucky enough to witness someone harvesting the seeds
of the Lotus plants. These seeds are said to help one attain a
new level of spiritual enlightenment.
