I based this on a photo I’ve got of the base of a tree truck, have no idea where I got it from. But then I fiddled with PIxlr’s gizmos and ended up with this. It’s a bit wild but I got that “aha” moment when it seemed finished and needed no other adjustments or fiddling. For some reason, this image reminds me of what you experience when you go through the Dark Night of the Soul – peering into the depths of flames, deep depression and transformation. We finally return to the light of day, different people, with a different, deeper view of life. And if you’re wondering how I know, well, I went through my own version of the Dark Night of the Soul when I was in my late ‘forties, early ‘fifties. Not something I wish to repeat, trust me on that one!
