Good morning, Netizens...
Our Picture of the Day today is a simple, expressive photograph of a solitary tree in the Palouse. It has been one of my favorite images since it first appeared in the Seattle P-I. (October 15, 2007) Mike Kane/Seattle Post-Intelligencer
There are places in my memory where I often go to simply sit and contemplate the essentials of life, and this is one of those places. If you drive south of Colfax, you can see this tree on the left side of the road. If you are not in a hurry there is a pull-out just up the road where you can park your car and walk back and sit beneath the isolated tree on the hillside.
Sit down in the shade and simply let everything in your mind wander away. Have you ever done anything like that before? If not, why not?
