The sycamore tree can often be easily distinguished from other trees by its bark, which flakes off in great irregular masses, leaving the surface mottled and gray, greenish-white and brown. It is a change of pigmenta- tion, a loss of melanin. The bark of every tree has to yield to a growing trunk by stretching, splitting, or infilling. But the sycamore displays the process more openly than many other trees.
A constant upgrade – it is time to cancel all nouns, only verbs should be left; and was it not a manipulative mistake from the very beginning– making one believe that nouns exist, believe in something constant; believe in the capturing of a moment.
The explanation lies in the rigid texture of the bark tissue of sycamore, which lacks the elasticity of the bark of some other trees, so it is incapa- ble of stretching to accommodate the growth of the wood underneath, so the tree sloughs it off.There is always a newer, more upgraded me growing inside me. Yet the old me keeps on living in parallel worlds, even when abandoned.
