This work takes its inspiration from a poem by Dylan Thomas. His work has greatly influenced Elwell. In his words, it conveys a sense of awe and wonder that things grow and flourish and then die. Elwell asks, How does this happen? Where does this life force come from? Is there any point in asking these sorts of questions? Elwell shares the poet's amazement and his awareness that a life force is shared by all - we are of the same stuff.
