One of the weird things that I have noticed about myself is that I have this really weird connection with nature, especially trees. There are three trees really close to my house that have been growing for almost twenty years. Their expansive root systems are starting to damage the patio and threaten the foundation of the house.

I sit here and look at them, knowing they will be gone soon. It makes me sad and emotional that three living things are about to be destroyed, partly due to my hand.
