Cyndie Shots

with 7 comments

Cyndie is the one of us who is home full-time now, and there are some glimpses I get from her day that give me a familiar feeling. She shared the following images with me last night.

While Mother Nature raged over our earth with pummeling winds yesterday, Cyndie captured a few moments that defy the agitation of non-stop air rushing by to somewhere else.

  1. Please tell us more about the leaning log with the horizontal and vertical cuts?

    • It’s an intriguing mystery. That relic is from before we arrived. I’ve pondered over the situation more than once.
      It sure gives the impression they were trying to encourage the bend of that tree. Why didn’t they just cut it down?
      One guess is the possibility of an entanglement with other trees, and they were trying to relieve some pressure, allowing this trunk to “hinge” a little more, without entirely releasing the tension and contributing to a greater collapse of other trees involved.
      Added context: it is located close to an old rusty stove where it looks like they cooked off sap tapped from their Maple trees. That spot would have been a place where idle hands watching the fire would have been available for all sorts of spontaneous activity.
