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?
