I wanted to use this as a Morning Mug, but I suppose it works as a puzzle too, which is how the photographer actually intended the image to be used in the first place.
As Anne Frank aptly wrote, “Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.”
And, less depressingly, from the photographer himself:
This is a tree, cut down to the stump, bursting back to life. As Jeff Goldblum put it, “Life will, uh, uh, find a way.”
