      A tree can be a metaphor for a cycle; in this respect it is also a metaphor for change, as a tree itself is in a constant state of metamorphosis whether or not it is visible to the naked eye. The tree is steady, always growing and changing in order to adapt and to survive in its surroundings. To the unobservant viewer it will seem as if nothing has occmTed, we see a tree only as its top layer. To the ones that truly look, however, there is always something new to see, which feeds into my philosophy that things are never what they seem on the surface. That is to say there is always more to what one looks at than what one actually sees
