Old Trees


Goose Island Live Oak

7940.jpgAge in excess of 1000 years.  This old tree has been there a very very long time.  It’s in the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in South Texas.  While visiting this spot, I had a overpowering sense of peace.  When we were there a family was visiting and the kids were hanging on another big oak, an off spring of this old timer.  Their laughter rang through the grove and added a sense of new life to a very old place.  The circle of life.  I would be highly surprised if the local native community doesn’t use this park for ceremony.  It certainly feels like a special spot to this old squirrel.  I will return to this old tree, to just enjoy its serenity.
