I knew they were performing maintenance this week, but I didn’t know they would cut down my favorite tree. The loss feels as great as anything I’ve had to let go of..
It’s arms embraced my balcony and chickadees, sparrows, wood peckers, crows and even the occasional Stellar’s Jay adorned those branches, hopping back and forth to my balcony rail.
That tree was my privacy from the world – my little piece of beautiful nature that I could imagine climbing to the sky.
All 150 feet or better of it will soon lay on the ground.
