Day 234 – Leave a mark

name carved into tree, leave your mark

“Honestly, the essence of publishing hasn’t changed. Since the days of the cave man carving stuff on the cave walls, people have wanted stories, and storytellers have wanted an audience. That is still the case. The changes are really a matter of format.” Susan Wiggs

Not just story tellers either, all of us have a desire to leave our mark which is why we carve out names in trees, or write it in concrete. Early man left his mark on cave walls, now we leave ours on walls and trees. We are all only here temporarily but we are all driven to leave something permanent behind when we are gone. I don’t know who ‘Guy’ is but from the looks of this carving it has been here a little while and as long as this tree continues to live and grow, Guy will forever be part of its life.
