IT LIVES!!! I have been working on a project about plant empathy and the ginkgo tree's ability to record its surroundings. As part of this, I have been living closely with this ginkgo tree for the last 7 months in an attempt to imprint myself onto its dna. The tree entered a limboed state of death mere weeks into the experiment, but I continued on despite. Well, today it has announced its survival!! How fitting that this tree, of which I have projected myself onto during a very hard year, sprouted fresh life the day after my last big hurdle? Perhaps this tree truly has made record of my existence!
