I needed a break today. A chance to return to a simpler time. So I climbed a tree. To the top of a 50ish foot tree. Sat up there for a while as my perch swayed in the breeze. Watched the wildlife. Admired the view. Enjoyed the warmth of the day. It was comforting and familiar. My skinned knee was the icing on the cake.
We should all climb a tree more often.
