Seasons of Change...

November 14th, 2006 (03:39 pm)

Benjamin just sent me THIS.....I cried.

We have talked so often about the trip we want to take together to Amsterdam,
a City he knows very well--close to his heart as Austin is to mine. He has spoken
about this tree...so many times.

All the places he wants me to see, to show me...to share with me.
I have never been.

How can one not mourn this Tree, in and of itself a life that has looked over the lives
of others for nearly two centuries--and was such a profound character in the life of
a girl whose Story has touched and inspired millions and millions of lives
in a quarter of that time?

But this life, like her Story...is not over.
A piece of it, planted again...will continue.

I cannot help but feel that he and I are meant to see the little tree that sprouts now
from the dying witness...of so much, horror and hope.
That the little tree that he and I will visit will mean
ever so much more to us, and to everyone who knows the Story.

Life continues.

Are things between you two getting better? I hope so.

The tree IS very sad.
