This was the view from our campsite during last week's vacation. The pond is for pedal boating. Just beyond that tree is the Chesapeake Bay. Nothing but water for miles on end. Interestingly enough, if you were to go straight across the bay from about this point, you'd hit Mathews County. And a whole lot of choppy water. But no ants.
This tree and I became very close on my so-called vacation. I sat and stared at it for hours and days on end. It spoke to me; I spoke back. I studied every single limb and marveled at the ever changing sky in the background. I am amazed how soothing it is to simply sit,daydream and focus on one gorgeous thing. You forget your worries, your ant infestations, the scorching heat, the hurricane-force winds with horizontal rain, and the lack of personal hygiene due to having to walk to the state of Delaware to get to the community showers. As a reminder, I am speaking of my "vacation" here.
I could post a different picture of My Tree every day from now until Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, here's what I want this year: the Orkin Man.
