This old tree is one of the first things I see when I venture out into the backyard. I have had many conversations (in my mind) with it. I have also had hundreds of thoughts about what it might have been like before it became what you see here. We, the tree and I, have had many conversations about its experiences and adventures. I will share my conversations and thoughts with you…one day.
Are you thinking that I, dellgirl, should be promptly committed to the looney-bin?
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind looking at this tree? What do you think about the shape it’s in? How did it get that way? What do you think should be done with or about it?
Have you seen a tree like this one in your immediate area? Do you have or have you ever had a tree like this on your property? What did you do to or with it?
I’d like to hear your comments before I share my conversations with this tree and my thoughts about it. Should I give it a name and call it a day?
