My apologies for not posting for a while as I have been out of town! Here is a new picture and it is a bit different than many others on this blog. Instead of landscapes or animals, this photograph symbolizes the slow decay of life and the necessity of such for new life. Indeed, these photographs capture the slow movement of wood to soil, of fresh, green moss on a dying artifact, and the vibrance that spring rain brings to the ecosystem. These large, moss-covered roots are from a tree that was a pillar of time, a pillar of an old ancient forest -a tree that was battered and beaten by wind, lightening and snow. This tree saw much of the world as it used to be – the wild untamed world where wolves, cougars, and elk roamed. However, like all good things the tree had to die and now gives life to other trees through the slow decomposition of itself. Across the forests of the world, pillars of time are being swallowed up by the earth as their progeny take their place. It really is beautiful and profound if one stops to consider it.
