Tree Blogging

"When we live in the house we relate to the tree, however powerfully."

Trees are such an powerful part of my daily routine.
I hear the birds in the trees out my office window in the spring.
In the fall, large leaves from the tree sit comfortably at its trunk.
Today, a cool January month, I see the snow falling from the tree branches, flurry by flurry softly touching the ground.
I sit, walk, stand on a floor made from trees.
My desk....formerly a tree.
Trees is such a powerful....integral....part of my daily routine.

This tree...moves me.
It is the first thing I see in the morning,
and the last thing I see at night.
It patiently awaits my arrival and departure.
It is present when I am absent.

This has been a blog for @Platea's Tree-Blogging project. Please check out the project here.
