It’s interesting to walk through old neighborhoods. The giant trees who grow there uproot sidewalks, letting you know they established residency long before you or anyone else happened to be around. Before the houses and the corner market; before the neighborhood park or school; these old trees were growing tall and strong.

Things are finally starting to feel a bit more like fall around here and so I’ve really tried to soak up this fantastic weather. During the middle of the day yesterday, I decided the weather was just too gorgeous to not get out and enjoy. I packed up some paper, pens and markers and headed out to do some work in a neighborhood park.

As I sat enjoying the view, I saw one particular tree more majestic and seemingly strong than any around it. The tree had a full head of green leafed hair – not a touch of yellow could be seen. It appeared as though this tree was holding on to summer even as autumn quickly closed in on it.

“I could fly that thing blindfolded,” she stated matter of factly. That she would do so using only her teeth, left them all in a state of shock and awe.

Watching her wield the string delicately yet assertively to direct the plane, was something magical. Her patience and attentiveness were not unlike the bonsai master whose trees take years to cultivate. This skill too, had been years in the making and was now receiving its much deserved time in the limelight.
