I haven't been posting for a while. I have taken time off to process and think about where I am and where I am going. Life is a constant "work in progress", I think it is good to stop, in this busy life, and just reflect. If you don't look at where you have been or where you are going you end up lost.
I have always liked trees and thought a good start up project would be to study different types of trees and their form. Cottonwoods are ubiquitous out west and it is not uncommon to see one or more in a group, usually marking water or a fence row.
