I come from a land with trees….lots of big trees. They are tall, and strong, and inspirational.
….but not so much today. The terrible weather events in October/November 2012 have had their way with them.
This part of the world is normally so beautiful.
The tragedy of Hurricane Sandy continues in the northeastern part of the US. Those beautiful trees that have stood for hundreds of years, have been significantly damaged. Row upon row of these witnesses to American history (these pictures were taken near Washington’s Headquarters at Jockey Hollow, New Jersey*) have been ripped out of the ground or broken in two, awaiting removal to the local dump.
… As I walk the streets of my childhood, I mourn the loss of these majestic sentinels… my heart breaks…
