The regenerative power of nature is always at its most striking in the vicinity of crumbling, rusting, or decaying human artifacts — especially when those artifacts were mass-produced garbage from their inception, designed to wear out and be replaced in an ever-quickening cycle of frenetic consumption. Going back to nature is really the only way they can attain a measure of dignity and beauty.

Two good points that had never crossed my mind. Thanks.

Concerning the dignity and beauty, I guess that’s why corporations often place their crap in natural settings for ads, settings where the products can’t function as designed. The pickup trucks on buttes, etc.
