To live in a tree

Photos by Pete Nelson

If I had my way, I'd move to a treehouse tomorrow. That's why I'm crazy about Pete Nelson, a world renowned treehouse builder and author. His latest book, New Treehouses of the World, was published in 2009, and I can hardly wait to hang his 2011 wall calendar in my study.

In addition to treehouses, Nelson builds tree studios for writers and artists and finds inspiration in these words by Blake:

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself."
