Dear Anny:

What excited me when I saw this picture was that this tree had exposed its spine to the camera. I have come to see
that earth's entities, or substances, allow (or don't allow) a meaningful picture to be taken. Then I thought: When like
a leaf I've decomposed back into earth, will I be grown upon like moss on this fallen tree, or just grudgingly accepted?
