Do you ever feel like this tree? I see this tree daily on my way to deliver my teenager to school. I had been planning to take a picture of it for months. Something always happened...no camera (well DUH!), dead camera battery, sun shining on it wrong...you get the picture. I feel like this quite often. I rarely have a large uninterrupted block of time to myself or my own pursuits. I get bogged down with house work/clutter/animals/other family members. I start one project and leave the room for it, and come back thoroughly engrossed in a DIFFERENT activity. I have to admire this tree tho. It IS bent...but it is not broken. It has adapted..and is still going strong! It still has green leaves and is growing! I feel bent over...but I hope I adapt and grow!


I'm off to finish up a QOV I had to pick out nasties on..its back on the frame and I want it on its way! Have a great day ::;trying to walk a little straighter...seeing that tree makes my back hurt!:::::

I definately feel like this sometimes, at the moment more often than not!!! What doesn't kill us makes us stronger!!

Great post. I do feel like the tree sometimes. But then a breeze comes along and makes me feel better.

That's a great photo of the tree! It reminds me that I need to practice keeping my posture! Lots of Japanese grandmas walk just like this!
