“The trees they passed repeated on and on into the woods. None was remarkable when compared to the next, but each was individual in some small regard: the number of limbs, the girth of trunk, the circumference of shed leaves encircling the base. No more than minor peculiarities, but minor particularities were what transformed two eyes, a nose, and a mouth into a face.”

– A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra

  • I love that quote! And how true it is… how a few features can combine to create infinite possibilities. It’s remarkable.
