"Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." ~ Abraham Lincoln
I want one of these... Stephen does too. But, who knew there were so many different varieties? Some grow slowly and others sprint to the sky, some stay small and others grow large and complex. The colors are all over the place... green, red, golden, maroon. And the leaf pattern ranges from typical maple shape to fine fronds delicately waving in the breeze. So many to choose from....
A little news... my brother, Stephen is in New York in rehearsals for his debut at the Metropolitan Opera. Hopefully he can get down here for at least a couple of days. The opera? Der fliegende Holländer...The Flying Dutchman.
Carmi's theme for the week is "trees".
