Impaled

It was only after taking this picture and while processing the image that I noticed the twig that had forced it way through the leaf. At some time in the past it had penetrated the leaf and proceeded to leave a "track" as the leaf grew around the intruding stick. Sometimes the events in our lives, much like the twig, leave injuries we overcome, but which we never can fully erase.
