Clouds, three straight trees, a cottonwood, a pecan and life’s changes
I took this pic to capture the gorgeous clouds in the background. During the drought that went on here for several years (it’s not really over) we went what seemed like eons without seeing a single puff of white in the sky.
The three green sentinels in mid picture I planted years ago. When first joined to the soil they stood not over a foot high. Now they top me, and other evergreens I planted various other places did not fair as well. There is still a lot left up to chance in nature. The pecan tree framing the picture is a native plant while the cottonwood behind it that seems to have struggled and still strains to make its mark on the sky I planted to remind me of the bosque I used to frequent growing up in Socorro county.
We always hear that life is change. And that transforming road often has curves, detours, rough spots and occasionally milestones. Events, sometimes with a dash of synchronicity thrown in, Signpost events that stand out and mark drastic reorganization. Sometimes good, sometimes bad, sometimes bittersweet. All just a part of life.
