Go Stick Your Head In A Tree

Posted 2006.06.29 0.00 in Photography

My folks have this maple tree in their backyard, which is shaped like a big green tootsie-roll pop. It’s short enough that if I stand next to the trunk, my head and shoulders are inside the sphere of foliage.

Inside the foliage, it’s like another world, all dark and green and interconnected with wooden walkways and gantries and support structures.

I could just picture the ants and bugs and birds and little critters, all going to and fro as they rush about carrying on their Important Business. “Meet you for lunch on the second twig from branch 37, Bill?” “Sorry Charles, not today, I’ve got a big meeting down by Trunk Junction. Tell you what though, have your ladybug call my ladybug and we’ll work something out.” “Right-o then!”

Or maybe it was the wine.

Embrace Your Inner Tree
