Decay and Rebirth

Raine Eisenlohr's avatar Raine Eisenlohr

Decay is just as important in nature as growth. Fungi and lichens are present at the end of a life, but at the beginning of new life as well. Fungi are not only stewards of the land, but interconnect life in the forest to create a shared consciousness. Living in the woodlands of Michigan has deepened my connection with all that grows here, down to the small lichens that live among our trees and mosses (which are featured heavily in this piece). The cycles of life and nature are beautiful to witness as even after there has been destruction, death, and decay, life goes on and is reborn again.
