Marvin Miller, Tree Carvings, Biloxi, MS.
About a year after Katrina I rode my motorcycle to the Mississippi Coast to check on my property there. I could not make it to the spot. The roads were not fully open and bridge not finished so I just took a short ride to the Beach Road and discovered an artist carving the remains of some large oak trees. They were beautiful and actually the only happy discovery there. I would tell people that story and encourage them to go see that art. Today I saw a video on the web from NBC and a blog entry from the official photographer of those carvings, Logan Photography. They are beautiful and demonstrate the axiom make lemonade from lemons. Drive over to Biloxi and take a look how beautiful they are.
