BeingWell

A man pulls himself up by the single outstretched limb of a tree. A woman sits on the peak of the cut off tree, her legs on the limb to which the man clings, trying to reach her. She wears a flimsy white dress and he appears clothes-free, at least from bid torso up. We don’t see lower. Both are in front of a light blue ocean (lower third of image) and a cloudy sky (with some blue shining through).
