Spring always make me take stock of where I’m at in life and where I want to be by year’s end. I often get a different perspective of my life during these spring-time musings. I took this photo last spring in Colorado Springs, Co shortly after updating my landscaping. I was kneeling under this tree, felt the warmth of the sun, and looked up. It made realize that as an adult I often forget about alternative perspectives.
I miss this tree, because after this day I often looked up into her branches while tending to the flowers and weeds below. Through the summer she was full of those lacy elegant leaves–so thick that I could no longer see the sky. By November, she had shed all of her delicate leaves. I would study her branches closely again in March for the first sign of a budding leaf.
