Root Ball

Root Ball | Lake Wenatchee, WA | July 2019

It’s not until the stately cedar tree falls that we realize the complexity of its existence. The simple elegance of trunk and boughs were supported and maintained by roots deep and entangled. In fact, the tree’s downfall may have resulted from tubers working at cross purposes, stealing from each other the essential nutrients to thrive. That’s why, perhaps, my own foundation weakens when life goes every which way.
