My Scouler's willow is finally coming apart. The first of the multiple trunks has tipped over, and Cory and Noah are helping it come all the way down.
It's near the house, but this one wasn't close enough to touch. However, a couple of the other trunks could hit the house if they fall that way, but it would mostly be the branches near the top, so probably wouldn't cause much trouble. Still, I'm hoping to find someone with a bit of talent to fell the tree in the other direction.
The boys chopped partway through, then the trunk twisted as it fell off, creating this interesting view!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
