Minnie, this is actually an incredibly interesting photograph. I like it a lot.

Oh, and good fortune with your exhibit. I hope it goes well.

Thank you Bob. On both counts!

Excellent image that tells an interesting story of defeat, but that would be the first page of the story. The second page and beyond would show/tell of a bird/animal picking up the tree branch to make a very powerful nest or other uses and there would be victory. I have confidence in your ability and knowledge and think you will do just fine with the exhibit. Pick that broken branch up Minnie and build a powerful nest for your upcoming event.

Thanks Dave. I could resist playing with that suspended branch, and it seems a fit metaphor for my state of mind.

Your branch reminds me of this ever popular kanji tattoo symbol representing Strength. It is rather apropos, if I don't say so myself.

Thanks, Duck!
I sure need a dose of strength. The exhibits coordinator who was going to shepherd me through this is out for 3 months with a knee injury, the assistant coordinator is out on vacation, and the dear lady I'm assigned to knows less than I do about how to make the posters that need to be made. The printing did not go as well as I'd hoped. And there are a hundred other things wrong. I'm headed to babysit three wild little boys till Sunday, so we'll see what happens in the interim. Running away from home is an attractive option.
