L'arbre



It's ironic how perhaps the only thing in the world that could fill me with wonder and awe, was not inside, but growing majestically in the compound of a church that houses a "miraculously" preserved body of a dead saint.

I love trees.

PS: The person standing next to the tree is 6 feet and half an inch tall. I would've gotten the whole tree in the picture, except it wouldn't fit in the frame. Did I mention that I love trees? <3

I miss trees. I think a lot of my early childhood was spent up trees. Oh, the injuries...

I love trees and nature in general. My dream is to live next to a forest with a waterfall.

Author,
Aww, don't be that way. Anyway, I know who you are and what you said *glint*

Shale,
Running from the law, were we?

Eshda3wa,
Sometimes, just looking at them is overwhelming. Yes, I might be a little weird. I'm not sure though.

Chika,
I think Kuwait has done okay for itself considering the desert soil. I've seen some beautiful trees here too, none as gigantic as the ones in the picture though. I think if I ever went to a rain forest, I would faint.

N.,
Stop dreaming. Go do. Or you could come to the rain forest with me and catch me when I faint in front of a giant sequoia tree.

Palo-girl,
Muchos gracias, amiga. I do what I can *humble bow*

Actually, sometimes just the other kids. Two older guys chased my friend and I up a tree once, and spent an hour flinging unfolded Swiss army knives at us. Oh, the joys of youth. One of those guys had put another guy in a coma by swinging a six pack of beer in a plastic bag shortly before.

Don't tell anyone I work with I am not posh though. Shhhhhh....
