    It’s a jolting shot – unexpected, haunting. Good one.

    I can see how one would be left with a feeling of haunt. It was written in ‘awe’ of what we (humans) have no clue of or I guess some do… The world-life and the communicating that exists that so many deny. I have been fortunate to witness these exchanges so intern I believe.

    I wonder how many people realize that the picture has been turned ninety degrees clockwise. She actually has her head on the ground. (Sidewalk, pavement, whatever)

    So much said in so few words – well done!

    And just like that…the forests are gone. Ireland was once called Hibernia; Scotland highlands covered in primeval forests. Once they go with clear cutting the top soil erodes and the Ents are gone forever. I cry for the trees, the jungles, the oceans. Beautifully said. Gay (@beachanny)

    I had to read it many times to digest its depth!
    Gave me the chills every time I read it!

    So intense, and sad!
    Beautifully written, with such few words too…
