the view from here...






...is quiet today. When I feel overwhelmed, I find it helps to look up. These are some of the great trees we have in our yard. They serve us in so many ways: bearing fruit, lending branches to climb, creating shade, breaking the winter winds, sprouting branches & leaves & cones & acorns to play with, offering kindling, and improving our point of view. I really love these trees.

What helps you to refocus?
