All Eyes on Me
This Aspen tree is visible from my place. Oh, say can you see? Can you see what I see? (I smudged out part of the background to make the tree stand out). It really struck me the yesterday – like eyes were looking in on me. I went for a hike to look at more Aspens, thinking this might just be a phenomena about the tree I hadn't noticed before, but I couldn't find any like this.
Am I the first person to notice it? To write about it? To consider the message behind it?
Each of these "eyes" seem to tell a different story. To reveal a different personality behind them. To me, one looks a little malevolent. Another looks sad. And the third looks curious, awake, watching. What do they look like to you? How should I interpret their meaning in my life?
None look particularly "adoring," but what the heck…
