“Ongoing research on the forest floor (an experiential exploration) Findings:
The foliage of the undergrowth is familiar and unknown.
The detritus is visceral: rotting and ripening.
The forest, as a nest and a grave, harbors contradictions. It nurtures, then smothers. Nurtures, smothers.
Softness, subtlety, and patience are held entangled in intricate overgrowth. Fermenting, gently.
The flora unfolds. The forest floor forgives.”
