An ancient found oak root has had an initial scrape down. It is certainly beautiful from all angles, but is it viable? Should it be returned to finish the enriching rot or can it have a second life? More scraping needed to find out.
SEVERAL WEEKS LATER It is like exploring a city which has suffered a trauma.I find underground passages, new openings appear in the rubble, treasures and beauty under the dirt. Can it be restored without losing its identity and integrity? Could anything finally enhance it or should it be left as it is? This exploration is also as I imagine a dentist's hygienist has to work.
