About this work:

While in England, I got the chance to see old yew trees. These massive trees are thousands of years old. They're trunks are wide and hollow with dirt. Their branches stretch like heavy limbs reaching for the dirt. Each one has lived a time longer than I can imagine. And each one is poisonous. The only part of the yew tree that doesn't contain alkaloid toxins is the flesh of its red berries. It's surreal that something so majestic and old can be so deadly.
