split in two...



Yes, this ancient olive tree is fabulous although split in two and holey.



Feeling split in two and holey myself lately, my two worlds yet to collide, but like the wonderful olive tree surprising new branches have sprung in spite of; some from the roots and some from the branches.



Love the contrast in the fields between the vibrancy of the new growth with the dullness of the olive tree branches.

Has really cooled off here...windy...brrr...this is when I miss central heating!

Good talking to you today my dear family...miss u terribly...

Wonderful analogies of life, it reminds me of how Uncle Pat compares Grandpa and the willow tree. He is slowly losing branches as the tree is dying off and you are sprouting new ones, but we all relate to our roots and their importance to the strong trees we become. We miss you and so love you all.
