What Might Be Inside of a Dead Log ? - Would you find it difficult to consider that a dead log, lying there on the forest floor, can hold more living things than the entire city of Magnolia, or maybe Detroit, Michigan, or even the jail in Chicago, Illinois? If that dead log is hollow, maybe there is a little mouse, or a rabbit, or a snake living inside it. Maybe the life is of a vegetable nature. Mushrooms, fungus, twisty vines that poke their heads out into the sunlight from time to time? Lots and lots of bacteria, mites, bugs, and discarded dreams might be under all of that decaying bark and flaking wood? Perhaps I stuck something into that old log a year ago - kind of like a time capsule - or maybe just a sealed can of Pepsi Cola? Let me tell you this. You will never know what is inside of that decaying, dead log. I am not going to tell you where it is that the log is hiding - in the growing grassy spot in the forest - someplace.
