Forces of Nature

Although this looks like wind has been at work that wasn’t the natural force that caused this big tree to split and fall, last Saturday was a still day. Tiny creatures have been at work. Maybe one single chomp from an enthusiastic termite was enough to finally split the tree, an emission of gas from an active bacteria or that last micron of filament put out by a fungi. Even tiny organisms are forces of nature to be reckoned with! (Gravity played a part too but that’s another natural force.)

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
