This is a picture from one of last year’s blizzards. I took this snapshot with my iPhone, not realizing how meaningful this picture would be to us. Last May, we had to take down the tree. It was split right down the middle and could not be saved. It was painful to say goodbye to such a beautiful tree which had become a constant in our lives. The tree was a focal point and a foreground to the river behind it, framing many of the pictures that I have taken over the years. I will miss seeing my kids on the swing, enjoying nature. Cutting down was a symbol of change in my life.
