    I had another "moment". I read the sentence where MS uses the word "strands" again,,,,and noticed something I hadn't noticed before.

    In essence, he defines how he is going to use the word himself WITHIN the same sentence.
    He dreamt of trees standing side by side within a mist and rising from the mist, in the center of the strands of trees, was the face of his wife.
    Yes, I agree MS is using this symbolism to describe Ana in her prison of willow.
    Her prison appears like "strands of trees, trees standing - side by side".

    Man, I admit to NEVER watching The Simpsons. So does "DOAH !" mean the same thing as "DUHHHH !"

    If you look in the background of many of the pictures, you will see a strand (?) of trees. Most of the time they echo the grass in the foreground of the pictures. There's an HLV, etc... perhaps we are supposed to notice them more than we have. They're on hillsides among others. The figures are consistent among pages, not unlike the dandelion formations.

    I apologize for being nitpicky and off-topic but thats how i am...

    Homer Simpson's catchphrase is Doh! not Doah!... there is no a involved. I have checked the title for every episode and there is never an a.

    Thanks.

    On the other hand, one could say that MS used the word "strands" because it fit the way the willow was woven together holding Ana captive.
    Funny Rusful would say "and put them in my hands", when he only stuck one hand out from the grotto.

    What if "There they stand five to a side" and "Ten of them near the overlook" were both refering to trees?
