Elizabeth, The Tree

I have the best next door neighbors in the world. Seriously. He’s a doctor (who makes house calls, to my house). She’s good at everything, especially if it’s creative: interior design, scrapbooking, gardening, cooking. Plus they’re just plain fun. They have two adorable children they happily loan to me anytime I am in the mood for some kid fun, a brand new swimming pool they are happy to sharea dog that swims laps, a wonderful deck that’s perfect for let’s just have a beer and talk it over, really great yard tools, and now: This.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Let’s start with Elizabeth. She’s a beauty. Strong roots,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a majestic canopy,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and, as you can see, the perfect branch for a swing. A gigantic swing, that hangs down 48 feet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The swing of that swing, it goes on forever. And so I am quite certain I shall never feel stress again.

  1. "The swing of that swing, it goes on forever." This ranks as one of my favorite sentences ever.
