A tree

with 5 comments


Who can resist a solitary tree at the top of a hill???

(I think this might have been a wee bit inspired by Six Feet Under…)

    • You’re right! It occurs to me, this might also have been inspired by Scarlett O’Hara vowing that she and her family will survive just before the intermission of Gone With the Wind…


  2. You know how you’re an island? I’m a tree.

    • But what kind of tree??? There are so so very many…
      For years I felt I was a tree – but a tree on a barge or other large flat boat, filled with soil and all the other things a tree needs to live. But nonetheless a tree at sea, which is entirely unnatural for a tree to be, no matter how healthy it appears to be. A tree is meant to set its roots deep into the soil (well, not if you are a palm tree…)… I guess my barge found a harbour – and I became an island…
      (Have you read Life of Pi? I found that book so utterly charming and close to my heart – I wished I had written half of it and maybe could have. I hear they have made a movie out of it – not sure I want to see it.)


      • I loved that book, and I agree, not sure how the movie could possibly captures the book’s essence.

        Kind of tree? Probably a weeping willow, on an island, in the middle of the ocean. I know. Totally improbable and impossible.
