the tree life
Perhaps deep inside of myself somewhere I remembered that this is how it feels to climb a tree and that is why for several years now I have been hankering after a tree house. Not just a play tree house, but a real one. One to live in. And I've found that I'm not alone. There are all kinds of people who aspire to live in the trees, from basic one-tree tree houses to spherical pods that hang suspended between many trees at once. There is something about that Swiss-Family-Robinson-type existence that seems so natural and yet magical all at once. When you view life from above you would think that it would seem even more insignificant and small, but instead the opposite is true. Everything seems to have more purpose and more meaning and more significance. And this is why we should never stop climbing trees, if only in our hearts.
