"Vanquished Trees" by Gary Nay
Step 2 : Get an Idea. A new highway is slashed through local farmland to facilitate the trucking of goods from the Delta Port to the rest of Canada. I notice that some level of government has attempted to beautify one of the interchanges with a vignette of sorts. Logs have been randomly placed in a harmonious but somehow sad way. Once majestic cedars and firs, runaway timber from a log boom no doubt, now decorate a spot where, perhaps, they once grew. VANQUISHED trees now symbolizing themselves in a landscape. An idea is born!
