Every day, except when the road is iced over, I walk a half mile down our road and back. My tree stands at a bend in the road. It is a very tall pine and quite old. It is quite large at the base, at about 20 feet tall it has split into three branches which grow up towards the sky. I call it my triune tree, three individuals growing as one. Every walk I talk with tree, and on the way back, I check how much energy tree gives to me. Some days I feel tree’s energy only about 6 inches out, some days I can feel the energy at 2-4 feet away. I feel that I give tree as much as I receive, at least I hope I am. I have only known tree since 1992. Tree has become a valued friend.
