Bones I found in John's garden

A friend of mine just fertilized his garden plot with crushed sea shells. I decided to look over the little white pieces, and I found a little vertebrae. Then I found another. I kept looking until 5 minutes had past without me finding any more. They're so delicate, porous, and surprisingly intact.

More cool things to have around, yay!

emergent properties of pen lines

draw a line down the middle left to right
stay parallel to the previous line, but add a bubble somewhere along the way
alternate sides
try to keep the sides symmetrical
don't let lines touch one another
end as you began

start anywhere by drawing a short line
branch it on both sides so that it grows exponentially forming mirror gingko leaf shapes
do this several times, working simultaneously so the leaves grow into one another
decide when growth is unsustainable
decay is reversed growth
one lineage
free will determinism
