Collage 666

"A wound in the soul, coming from the rending of the spiritual body, strange as it may seem, gradually closes like a physical wound. And once a deep wound heals over and the edges seem to have knit, a wound in the soul, like a physical wound, can be healed only by the force of life pushing from inside."

I found an image of birches that reminded me of the trees at Yasnaya Polyana and used it to call to mind the force of life pushing from inside the edges of the wounds Natasha and Princess Marya have both suffered at the loss of Prince Andrei. ~ Trish
