Welcome to the Dwarf in the Grove.
Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

if it’s what I’m thinking of, those are called Burls if you’re murrican or Burrs if you’re from pretty much literally anywhere else
It’s less of a disease in itself and more like a sign of a disease. Usually fungal infections fuck up the tree growth and cause them
People actually steal them sometimes because some of them are super valuable. They make really cool looking carved stuff and are really dense.
what the fuck. they just chop the ass right off a tree and sell it to the tree ass black market. that’s brutal
That’s… Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate.
People have actually been arrested for it and redwood national park gets blocked off at night because people stealing and selling tree ass on the black market is such a big problem
requesting backup for a 376 in process, that’s right we’ve got a tree ass jacker here
those ass bandits will do anything to get wood

THE STRINGS STARTED AND INWAS SO FUCKING DONE
I’ve realized I haven’t drawn anything related to my own projects for more than a month and it’s driving me mad, so I’m going to do a quick drawing/painting every day related to either my upcoming comic project or our group’s shared fantasy homebrew setting.
This is Verdandi, the middle one of three giant sisters called the Norns. They are based on the mythological trio of the same name, however they do not decide the fate of men and gods like in Norse legend, they can instead ‘see’ the Multiverse without time when they combine their particular talents. Verdandi is able to witness any and all events currently unfolding in the Universe regardless of distance. Her job is to call which of the potential variable futures her younger sister Skuld sees actually happens, so that it can be chronicled and archived by their older sister Urdr, whom has perfect recall of every event in the history of life in the Universe (this particular one, anyway). They reside in a wandering asteroid called The Well of Fate, upon which their Hall is built.
Out of the three, Verdandi is the one most concerned with mortals and usually the one who talks to those powerful or resourceful enough to reach the asteroid, most likely seeking knowledge. It is said for every possible Universe there are three Norns, and that they gather periodically to compare their differing records and accounts of events.
