I have always liked the idea of having a tree planted in honor of a loved one. I feel something spiritual in the presence of trees. Something about the rustle of the leaves in the wind and the sway of the branches takes me to a different plane and I feel connected with past and present. Last year I had a tree planted in David’s name as a Christmas gift for his brother’s family out in California. It didn’t cost very much, so I am sure the tree is just a little sapling somewhere out there in L.A.

Anyway, as I worked on this piece I started thinking that this is how I imagine David’s tree will look someday, standing in silhouette against a moving sky.
