wod heart

Walking by a dry creek, I came across this fallen tree with an ineteresting bend at the bottom. I have seen aspen with this bend at the bottom but not many pines. It is caused by the heavy snow shifting down a slope when a tree is in the way, especially younger trees they get bent by not being able to withstand the pressure of the snow. They are stiill reaching for the light, trying to stay straight, but end up looking like the letter "J". In this case the bottom of the "J" had been stripped of bark allowing the grain to show making a heart shape in the mandala.
