Lone Tree

Sometimes I find myself in awe the strength, size, and grandeur of lone trees. Not with this one. I don’t know whether it was planted here on purpose or whether a stray seed found its way to this location. Maybe it just needs some more time to grow.

Or maybe my perspective needs to change. Every variety of tree has different characteristics. Each location brings opportunities and challenges. A tree could be thriving and look very different from another tree that is also thriving. The same is valid for life. Thriving can look vastly different for different people. And that it is good.
