Sure felt like spring today, but when are the trees going to bud and flower?

    Ms. Ahmed, your photo is a unique statement. Humanity still struggles, despite its slow destruction of the environment, to cry out, “Look, we are still full of life, we are still beautiful.” The leafless trees stand as mute testimony to the fallacy of that cry.

    I love the beautiful splashes of color and I love trees, full or bare. They stand as unique witnesses to life and its billions of years existence on our planet. They have evolved since long before the age of dinosaurs but their conditions immediately reflect the condition of life on our world. New skyscrapers can be built shiny and bright by workers whose lungs are caked by the poisons used to build them. The glittery buildings do not reflect that. The trees, however, do.

    And while such may not have been your intent, I appreciate the opportunity for reflection that your art provides.
