About

Welcome.  Thank you for reading “The Stories of Trees,” a blog about roots and branches and lives that “leap greenly” but unfold slowly.  I’m Stacy Moore.  I live in the high desert of New Mexico, where trees are not taken for granted.  They are signs of nearby water; they offer the miracles of shade and shelter in an exposed landscape.  They are green respite in a world of browns and reds and grays.  I have come to love them for their capacity to endure and for the stories they tell of bending and adapting and slow, inexorable growth.  They are symbols to me of how to live bountifully when your circumstances do not allow you to take action at will, or to move forward on the plot line of your own story.  The ideas that unfold here take trees as their model.  I write primarily about deserts, gardens, and life with chronic illness.  Please feel free to contact me at stkmoore@gmail.com.

  1. A beautiful About for a beautiful blog. I’m grateful I discovered your writing — a fellow New Mexican by way of a delightful lady (Jean. P.) in Maine!

  2. Stacy, I’m not certain how to privately message you… Would you be willing and able to slowly and artfully write for the “Who but You?” living alone project this or next month (onward into infinity)? My email is powerofpaperzines@gmail.com Take care! –Kim
