When we woke to sunshine and blue skies today it was the perfect excuse to venture out for a walk. Let me introduce you to my favourite tree (everyone has a favourite tree don't they?)...
Isn't this just a remarkable example of nature prevailing? It's huge, it's completely hollow and burnt out, presumably after a lightning strike, but yet it's still standing and even more than that, has sprouted leaves. If the last post was about 'presence', then this one must be 'perseverance'.
Just look at the inside, all blackened charcoal. It so reminds me of Magdalena's work from the previous post too, the blackness, the scale, the textural surface, that you can be inside it.
Love, love, love it!
