When I was very young, I stayed up in this one tree for hours and hours. I was in that tree once during a storm. I bent with the branches, the wind whipped around me in a sense of power that left me breathless. It was amazing, that rush of power. There were these three trees close together; also, in this field thing I used to go to. You had to climb one first to get to the second, and then use the second to get to the third, which had the highest branches. I can’t find those trees anymore.
