thank you for this, Michelle.
look at that
Michelle - what a beautiful twisty tree spiraling up to the sky! Love it!
Beautiful, yes, but you know that's not how they grow, we prune them like that in this City, to let more light it so no one can hide in lush foliage, cause they do, the still agile homeless--a full leafed tree is good shelter for the night.
looks like she' s writhing
Yes Kaite--that's what she did to get up high enough past the others when they were all full--before the 'security' needs and 'security' lights came on the scene of all these little parks around town. Then the parks department cut the low branches (harder to climb) and thinned out all the lush foliage leaving tall twisty trees all over. The effect is kind of beautiful visually, but it's not what the tree had in mind. One can still find unaltered trees here and there--some in Central Park which is patrolled 24/7, and some in Van Cortland Park on the upper edge of the island, but you wouldn't want to go there at night. I'm back to 'what a world!'

Well now everyone knows what the scattered Michelle is capable of--and I hope you're laughing with me as I return this post to it's rightful perch.
