2013, Sat 12 Jan. About a year ago, the authorities planted some young trees (a little older than saplings) along a pedestrian path, near where I live. I walk past those new trees to and from work. In the past months, the trees have gotten taller and in their ‘adolescence’, their sprouting branches and leaves tend to be in my way (or my face, rather). I have to stoop to pass them. But I didn’t mind at all. It was like watching them grow, like children into teens and adulthood. If I’m still living here in my old age, these young ones (and they’ll still be young) will provide me with much needed shade. #365sketches
