Desk Flotsam

Aside from the normal things on my business desk - phone, bills, magazines, pictures - I have a few interesting additions of late.

1 Envelope, ripped open with contents still inside. Back used as a hasty note surface for a business voice-mail message that I accidentally cut off mid-way and can't get back.

4 carved willow statues in the following forms:
-couple dancing
-couple woman in front of man, arms entwined
-woman with wings and a cradled heart
-child with wings and a very thorny rose

And then we have the 5th willow statue. She is laying down, tightly clutching her 3 wire flowers. Her position could be likened to a coffin pose, an image which is helped by the fact that her head is somewhere in the vicinity of her right arm. Below it. Facing down.

What happened to her?

She fell. And fell again. And again a few more times. Until finally her head and body went separate directions when she landed.
