I pass this tree on a daily basis, but today it struck me. I actually looked at it and paid attention to it. It’s quite an eyesore, but I like it. There have been plenty of days I have felt like this little ugly tree. There are hundreds of trees, bushes, shrubs, etc. on campus, and this is probably the saddest looking one there. In a way, I respect this little tree. Maybe I’m making a mountain out of a molehill, but I think the deeper metaphor of this ugly little tree is quite substantial.
I wonder if it will look any better in the Spring when it gets leaves…
