Here I am, up a tree! I'm sitting up there in that bend, which means I've almost made it to the top. If you are on the ground and you lie on your back and you stare up, way up there, that's what it looks like to start a novel. And when you get to the bend, you think, whoa!, I didn't know it was going to do this! And then you get up in the leaves, where you can't see how far you've come, and finally you emerge into the sunlight and it's, like, you're Tarzan AND Jane, and all the chimps, and you can dance from tree top to tree top, swinging and swooping whooping and hollering, and it jes feels sa good. Of course, eventually you have to come down. Gulp.
Ha! Well, I'm not there yet, but I'm at the bend that leads there.
Where on the tree are you today?
Oh, and did I mention? Photo by Andif. The "f" is for foto.
