See this gorgeous tree?
It lives and shines and breathes no more.
This week, our neighbors murdered this tree in our window. Destroyed it. Had a hundred years hacked down, shredded, over a few hours.
I was devastated. And more glad than ever that we are moving away. And hopefully, never again will we live so close to others that they can tear down trees which feel like our own. Trees just feet away. Trees waving in our windows. This is the second time within one year that this has happened--this tree's sister was murdered in the next yard beside it months ago.
But it was worse this time, because this was the tree which greeted me in my Tower Room window upstairs. Waved to me and smiled. But it is gone now. Forever.
And it cannot be replaced.
P.S. And no... the tree wasn't sick. It was just as gorgeous and healthy as ever.
