That's Art, Right?
There you go. That is the sculpture I have created (haha!) in the woods at the spot where I stop to pee most days. One day I left the path and wondered back through the woods to find a place to squat and when I looked right beside me, I saw that skull. I was having a rather strange day anyway and it seemed to me that the skull might, if I allowed it, portend some horrible thing.
I tried not to let it and as I recall, nothing horrible happened and over the months I have developed a bit of affection for it. I do not know what sort of animal whose head used to contain it. Anyway, a few days ago I picked it up and set it on that old stump. I think this is such a human thing to do. A primal urge to say, I have been here!
Or, in my case, I have peed here!
