I’ve cut some wood into small pieces, these I’ve carefully put in random places, rooms, places where I’ve been working. Wondering if the tree still has ‘life’ and becomes part of its surroundings. I’ve put collections together with other trees. The sawdust I collect, I’m not ready to let go of any of the ‘parts’ of the tree yet, except for a few small pieces that have been gifted to interested people. I also, as part of a celebration early on, sprinkled sawdust on a shared salad, this food me and another tree-loving friend shared, as we talked about plants and life.
