I've walked past a tree that had fallen over the creek dozens of times.
For some reason, last weekend it really caught my eye.
Perhaps, it is because everything is now starting to leaf out? All winter, I probably just assumed it was a dead tree across the creek.
It's hard to see in this cell phone photo, but this fallen tree is far from dead. Leaves are still shooting up off the branches.
I feel like this tree should be on one of those inspirational posters with a corny caption:
"never give up" or "never stop reaching for the light" or "keep hanging on".
The tree inspired my corny self.
