|Morning work on road where the tall trees once stood|
Here is the tree and location as seen this morning. I've walked by it, but because it is nestled in the far corner from the others I've photographed, I never spent time near it. This tree is along the same line of the others cleared for the new drainage and road but has been untouched by machinery. It's the only intact place to stand right now amidst the development. My dog led my there and it really was like seeing it for the very first time. Beautiful and old, reaching and strong. Through the space below its limbs there's a view of the middle field and places I've been. It's almost a window into the past, a look into the paths taken and appreciated that are now a part of me. The remaining beauty really stood out to me there today, and I plan to scoot into this spot again.
