the calligraphy of trees. a tree was taken down some time yesterday about a block from my home. the neighbourhood is highly protective of trees so this particular plant must have been very dead, very dangerous or possibly both. the stump was fresh and new to me, and as i passed it i noticed this beautiful calligraphy. tree stumps tell stories and i am sure that these black tracings tell the story of something that the tree had to deal with - or perhaps it is at the root (can i say that?!) of the tree's demise . . . .
