Day 162 ~ Create a trap.

This is a trap for negative thoughts. I tried photographing it at first without the sticks across the opening and it looked too nest-like, which has positive, nurturing connotations and didn't work. But I used the dried grasses because I wanted it to look burnable, implying that once all those nasty negative thoughts get trapped in there they could be set ablaze and disappear. So I tried a little mat board trap door held up by a stick. That looked kinda cute, then the wind blew it down and the mat board piece fell opposite the intended direction and the stick lay across the hole which gave me the idea for more sticks and that looked best to me, like the traps set for the bad guys in the Tarzan movies.
