    Wonderful and wonderful old tree. We have one near us like that – I persuaded the people who were clearing the field NOT to take it down. I think it’s a walnut!

    Are you winding down, lass?


  13. Eliza Waters says:

    That’s a beautiful old tree – it looks a human transformed with arms aloft!

    Yup – just as dying, decaying things bring life to roots and earthworms – ashes to ashes, dust to dust, just doesn’t, to my mind, honor our living life, even in death, in the FULL circle of never ending ‘Life” – but well – – as always, you said it best, better, in way fewer words that I typed, in agreement with you! πŸ˜€
