Plants are not stationery, they are constantly growing, moving and twisting toward the light.

“When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly inter-twined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?”
–   Seneca

This week, share a photo of something that says “twist” to you. It might be that perfect ice cream cone, a yummy bit of liquorice, or something unexpected that surprised, shocked, or startled you.

  11. Thank you for taking me back into rainforest. I used to spend a lot of time in rainforest, before rock-hopping, before boating … Before other things moved to the foreground. My favourite is the second one- that’s a real catch.
