the old tree

July 29, 2013

Our neighbors had one of the oldest trees in the neighborhood in their yard. It was close enough and large enough to us though that it felt like ours. It was our favorite thing about our space.  It was an enormous tree that provided lots of shade, interest, and coziness.  One day half of the tree just spit and fell into all the neighboring yards.  It was a mess and started a mass butchering off all the trees it damaged.  Now our space is so bright and empty!  The sun is blazing on us all day and our old house lot is looking more like a plot in a new treeless neighborhood.  So sad.  We were all pretty bummed about, but one day when all the tree cutters were chainsawing and grinding away, Milo said, “Well, I am very sad about this but I think we shouldn’t be too sad because soon we will get used to it not being there and there will be something good about it being gone I think- like we can see more of the pretty blue sky now.”   Wise little man.
