It is amazing that out of Nothing, what we call life, exists. This tiny  horizon, floating in the air is just a miniscule speck of growth that has happened for a blip of time. The orientation of the artwork is correct, with the water below, a firmament on low, but it might be above, with a vegetable sun.  It is all the same. “Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.“
