Sometimes when I look at something I see strange shapes inside of it. And sometimes, objects just remind me of what's happening in the world. This particular object has done both. When I look at this stump, I see designs within the rings that seem to defy the growth pattern. Is that an eye looking back at me? The stump also reminds me that time may appear to pass slowly, but growth is still happening. Already tiny sprouts are appearing around what was once a tall tree. As Jurassic Park said, "Life Finds A Way."
