#336 • Watching The Trees

During the holiday season I start watching evergreen trees very closely. They start to change. There's a little more sparkle in the branches, and it's not just snow and ice. They seem to rock back and forth, to and fro with a little more energy, and it's not just the wind. It's nature's way of lifting the spirit I think.

Evergreens know they've got something over their deciduous neighbors, seasonally devoid of their flashy fall outerwear. These firry pyramids stand out very prominently now - tall, strong and firm like mythical ancients offering warmth and shelter, and a welcome contrast to the monotone winter landscape.
