Every time I see this tree in this picture the word Wisdom comes to mind. What has this tree seen in its lifetime? What has it endured? How many people have walked by this tree? The stories it must have.
It resembles a totem that the Indians use. Is last few branches reach out like limbs. They seem to give you direction in some authoritarian way.
I wonder if ligthning has strck this tree before, it look like it.
What stories does this tree create for you?
I took this photo on June 24, 2006, on my way up to the Fresno Dome. I have not been there since. Maybe it is time for a journey.
