Another Man's Treasure
The title comes from the old saying ???what is one man???s junk, is another man???s treasure.??? It also is parity on pirates taking another mans treasure. In this case, the story illustrates a lesson on how values change in different circumstances in life. In the picture, you will see a little structure... full of charm and pirate flavor that is on a beach. Constructed out of the salvage from the inhabitor???s wrecked ship??? the carcass of the ship is seen just outside the breakers with only some wooden ribs and the bow showing. It was obviously wrecked on the rocks during a storm or some mishap. Pieces of the ship, windows, boards and a pirate flag as an awning shade create a little shack. A treasure chest is spilled on its side??? the treasure is partly visible but fading into the sand. The use for this chest now is as a table, where we see a knife stuck in the surface next to a plate with a fish skeleton on it. The chest is more valuable now as this eating surface than anything else. What good is gold on a desert isle? Behind this on the side of the shack we see the marks carved in the wall.... made to count the days or months lost on this island.
We see rum bottles strewn everywhere in the sand... even woven into the structure... and husked coconuts. This along with fish from the sea is his sole diet. Lots to look at... a slightly stormy sky with huge cumulous clouds in rose and violet.
