Definition
complicated — having many complexly arranged elements
  • And from Hyde's classroom, things did seem connected: The trees seemed to clothe the hill, and just as I would never think to notice a particular cotton thread in the magnificently tight orange tank top Alaska wore that day, I couldn't see the trees for the forest—everything so intricately woven together that it made no sense to think of one tree as independent from that hill.
