Hello? Is anyone in there?

It was a foggy morning, and even though I was drawn to the beauty, it seemed a bit spooky, too.

By the side of the road

Roadside images are plentiful around here, I only have to “bother” to stop. This time what attracted my attention was on the other side of the road; fortunately I turned around.

Lonely ?

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?

Tree Canopy

As I walked through Sydney, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of these large, mature trees.  They were everywhere!

After 5 weeks of scheduled posts, I’m back from an incredible trip to New Zealand and Australia and will be posting more currently.  I’ve been sharing that journey in several posts on Life on the Bike.  So many photos / so many blog posts.  Pop on over if you have a minute, and know that I look forward to catching up on all of your blog posts, too.

 From such a tortured tree, sweet fruit can grow. What can we learn from this?
