A thousand wonders
"A Thousand Wonders" is crafted as a collection of scenes and vignettes which cannot stand up alone. Like people in a community, these small bits lean on, undermine, and reveal truths about each other, making at least as much sense as that Crazy Sweet Pea. Taken from an even larger work, this short story can't tell everything about Betsy, Lucy Belle, Kelso, and the trees of Bouren. No one reveals everything and some never say a word. The trees would like to remind you that they are the very paper of this thesis. Even the oils that make your computer components are just very old plants under a lot of pressure.
