Redwood trees have always impressed me. From a seed no bigger in size than a tomato seed, they grow as tall as 35 story buildings. In fact, their height helps them survive in dry seasons as it helps them live on only the moisture they are able to extract…

A Hug is Still a Hug

She greets me at the door, jumping, spinning, wanting my full attention, demanding to be touched, acknowledged, held. She craves to have my arms wrapped around her in a loving embrace, holding her with tenderness and purpose. She dashes off wanting to show me what has held her interest throughout the day.

SL-Week 49–Vintage
