The Hoquiam River ran through the farm where I grew up, with a big alder bottom at each end. For a farmer, alder is just another word for handy firewood. For a kid, alder is just another way to the sky.

"We'd never know how high we are, till we are called to rise; and then, if we are true to plan, our statures touch the sky". ~ Emily Dickinson  1830-1886

  3. And we climbed with ease, never giving a thought to why, how to map out a plan, or what would happen if we fell or failed. If we could tackle life as "it is just a tree"...education is a wonderful thing, but it comes with a price. Why Not to do something.

  4. The view from the top of a tree is magical. I think that is where I first realize there was more to Life than my backyard.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
