After Mozart's birthday but before Presidents' Day there's The Day The Music Died. My discovery of Buddy Holly came decades after the Clear Lake, Iowa plane crash of February 3, 1959. Don McLean's "American Pie" was a huge hit during high school, and even if we didn't really get it, we sure sang along on the chorus. That was the mental mash-up when I was photographing the sections of the fallen forest guardian, and the cause of a persistent ear worm all week.
The decomposition of this old guardian in the woods will be fascinating to observe. It's been slightly over a year since it fell to earth.
