Thursday Tree Love: Making the Most of the Space


“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.”

―Kakuzo Okakura

On our way to the park, Marley and I pass a tree whose trunk is wider and flatter than most. It seems the big trunk has adapted to fit in the narrow between the sidewalk and the street while the branches and leaves sprawl above in the sky. Presumably, the roots expand below out of sight. Studying trees has shown me that they are individuals doing their best to adapt over time.
