My favorite tree. In my favorite hometown spot.
Five years ago, she was on fire. Orange as ever. I felt like I was on fire too. About to head off to Nepal, I was ready for what was next. That fall was spectacular.
This fall, she’s not so orange. No so well. Maybe she’s older, maybe she’s too tired to glow but don’t give up on her yet. Tree, I feel the same some days.
Let’s look closer though. She’s still got some orange fire in her leaves. She’s still in the game. So am I tree. So am I.
