"Ah... but don't you think that 'Death's tree' taps into the subconscious, with echoes of hangings, human sacrifices and the deaths of Odin and Christ?...."
Absolutely, but why tap into that when you can evoke an alternative view, also with Christian and Pagan - and humanist and evolutionary - echoes that the world doesn't end with our individual withering but goes on, and for every blossom that falls another will bloom. After all, its unprovable which is right, its only a way of looking at it, so why be nihilistic when you can be jolly?!

I reckon its his scandinavian darkness and melancholia coming out, maybe they all suffer from SAD and its down to the weather like you said. We'll all be battling that soon so I'm looking to you to select only happy clappy stuff for a while. ;) We need some megalithic limericks. Maybe you could start a Competition thread about them...
