humanity’s footprint crept
creating a morgue
I was absolutely amazed at this thing, the McMillin Mausoleum. In the middle of the forest, man’s creation of a mausoleum honoring self. Upholding ego. The prompt today is about a scientist who has developed new plants and flowers. It isn’t really “natural” as we know nature. It is humanity’s tampering with nature. The chairs are headstones where their ashes are buried. The hallmarks of this clan are, in this order, “Templars, Methodist, and Republican.” Something about Sigma Chi, too. More info can be found here. But every single piece in this mausoleum has symbolic value, even including the number of steps. Absolutely fascinating! I wish the photos were better. All I had was my cell phone. Also, please disregard the random captions. I’ve tried to get them removed, but am defeated. (rolling eyes).
On this day in 1849, scientist Luther Burbank was born. Burbank was a botanist, or someone who studies plant life. He was known for developing new types of flowers and plants. Reflect on nature
