Feeling a little quiet lately. Still coming to terms with the loss of our beloved tree. Looking for reassurance that removing it was the right or necessary decision. Dreaming of new trees to plant in its place.
With giant limbs falling regularly, it was obviously in decline, and with hurricane season upon us, we couldn't take the risk. Still, I miss the shade, not only in our yard, but over much of the street, stretching into several neighbors' yards. Is it silly to cry over a tree?
I'd had my eye on Julie's prints for a while, and now that I only have the memory of my tree, I finally ordered two of them with a plan to maybe frame them next to a photo of the tree. I love the connection she made between home + roots. Even without the tree, even when you're not home, those roots will always be there.
I have been able to do some creating lately, and I'll share those projects when I find the more positive outlook that should accompany them.
