Somewhere in our minds is the "Countdown to September". It may be Labour Day, which signals the ending of summer, or the start of school. There are all sorts of apps for counting down to Labour Day, to September 1st, to January 1st, etc.
What about the countdown app that is the Burning Man Countdown. I checked out their important dates and upcoming events. The 'Burning Man Community' has events centred in Nevada and San Francisco. They are a 'network of people inspired by the values reflected in the Ten Principles and united in the pursuit of a more creative and connected existence in the world."
So my two images today, charred stumps that land on Lake Ontario's shores seem fitting for this theme. The first image seemed to me to be 'first step' . Perhaps it is an escapee of the 'burning man community'.
