Behind our barn a short distance through the woods stands one of the largest trees on our property. As I was cutting saplings last week, I passed by and spent a few minutes studying this giant and noticed something of interest.
Although somewhat difficult to see in this photo, there stretches parts of an old fence through this same section of woods, and this fenceline passes directly through this tree. Part of the wire protrudes from the other side.
This is our story, in real time and in photos. It is neither unique nor unusual nor extraordinary. But it is our story.
