Day 85: The tree outside my window
This stately pine which now reaches over thirty feet tall is my view from the office where I type. This tree is magnificent and reaches to the sky. I often find myself daydreaming instead of writing. We planted this tree from a tiny bucket when we moved into this house in 1997. The little tree was a gift from the SF AIDS Foundation. Ron and I used to deliver meals to AIDS patients in SF on Thursday afternoons. At the yearly Christmas party in 1997 they gave each of the volunteers a small potted pine.
Now look at you. Isn't nature astonishing?
