another rendering of archetypal mother…maybe…that’s what I thought, anyway, when I came upon this pine cone nestled into the curve of an old branch on the forest floor

That looks like a big cone. It also looks like it has dropped all its seeds. I didn’t even know there were pines in Arizona.

It’s not too big, Allen…between the size of a golf ball and baseball, probably…and yes, there are lots of pines in Arizona…Prescott National Forest, Coconino National Forest…among others, are loaded with Ponderosa Pines…and maybe even others…and there are quite a few of them down here in the desert area, as well, imported, no doubt, but the northern forests are loaded with them naturally….

The entire life cycle in a single shot. Definitely a picture worth a thousand words.

Thank you, Andy…that nestled cone instantly reminded me of some of the sculptures pictured in my old mythology texts.

Like a fertility goddess on the forest floor. Beautiful.
