Lonely ?

Lonely?© Steven Willard

I find a certain poignancy in images like this. Perhaps it’s because I have a tendency to grant trees human feelings-and why shouldn’t I ?  Recent research has revealed that trees do communicate*, and what is communication but a sharing of knowledge? And if trees can know things it’s not much of a stretch that they can feel things, too.

So, is it wrong for me to believe that his lone tree might actually be lonely?

  1. She is not lonely. She is the star of the show and everyone came to watch her dance. The wind is blowing perfectly. She is showing off her new dress. All the other trees bow in awe of her beauty.
    It’s a beautiful picture. I love it!


  2. Awesome image Steven 🙂 It makes perfect sense to me after all people talk to plants. If I were a tree I would be jealous that nobody was talking to me. Great work.
