Another day, another tree. . . If a tree falls over in your neighborhood while you're not home, and when you do come home you find cleanup crews next door chainsawing the remnants and the power company replacing fallen lines, and your electricity is out until 9 pm and cable and internet until the next day, did the tree make a sound?
Yet another tree falls in our neighborhood, this one right next door to my home, and did some real damage to the house next door. It's still inhabitable, but there's blue tarp on the roof as I write and lots of damaged gutters, porch railings, etc. Trees have now fallen on all of the houses around me, and it's just a matter of time until one lands on my house.
Just another reminder of impermanence.
