The Non-Living Tree

My dear wife is fond of green things.

Some of these green things are alive and growing, but others are not. There is a rather interesting looking tree in a corner of our apartment that looks like it’s alive, but it’s not.

I realize why she bought it and why she keeps it, especially here in the cold north where snow is on the ground four-to-six months of the year. It reminds us both of spring. It reminds me that, Lord willing, the snow will melt and (one day soon) I’ll be back out on the golf course before long.
