I was told about this spectacular eucalyptus tree in Pescadero, CA by Shawn, a fellow dancer and nature lover. He called it “The Plumbing Tree” because its intricate branches reminded him of elaborate pipe works. For reasons only it knows, it grew more sideways than upward.
Many of the trees in the Project have been revealed to me, and shared with me, by fellow tree lovers. (If I end up creating a TreeSpirit make a photograph from such a tip, that person receives a print of the image in appreciation.)
People apparently enjoy, as I do, seeing these two people in union with the tree and each other, three bodies intertwined.
Oftentimes next comes the human question, “Is this two women? Or a man and a woman?” If I wait a beat or two, they usually come up with my own favorite answer… “It doesn’t matter, does it?”
