Like a small microcosmos, these abruptly cropped bushes witness of a brutal approach to life. Not only as in the human lifespan but to life itself. Everything is pruned and shaped to our will. Not necessarily gently and respectfully. Efficiency and profitability is the highest aim. Anything else has to give way to that. Nature must accept our wishes, and apply to them. But will there come a time where we will be forced to shape our lives after the result of our devastation?
