Trees are living journals that record environmental changes and events in their layers of rings. In this piece, time is also measured in the growth of the oak from seed to seedling to mature tree. In a way, a tree records the passage of time, while the ever increasing rings keep it alive and strong.

The way trees add layer upon layer of cells to make rings reminds me of how we store our own memories. Some remain buried, others surface in surprising ways. Does the tree remember her seed?
