“I have noticed that youngsters given to the climbing habit usually do something when they grow up.” Elbert Hubbard

I climbed trees when I was a young child.  I remember getting to the top of a particularly tall tree (to me anyway) when I was about 7 or 8 years old.  I was absolutely stunned by the view.  We lived on the North Shore of Lake Superior at the time on a ridge about two miles from the lake.  There was no development of any kind between us and the lake.  Climbing that tree and seeing that completely unobstructed view made a huge impression on me.  My world was quite small until that moment.  It really hadn’t occurred to me that there was a lot more “world” out there.  But here was my proof!  

In that tree – I could see “everything”.  I was on top of the world!  

And here is my Grand Daughter learning to do the same thing!  She’s a natural climber – just like her Grandma.

“He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit.”  — Sir Walter Scott

I’m so lucky to live where I live.  I have two acres surrounded by forest and parkland, with a creek running along one side.  We live in suburbia, but I feel like I’m living in the wilderness at times.  This is the time of year that I relish the beauty around me as the earth erupts from Winters sleep in all her beauty and splendor.  Last year I captured  a great shot of my Granddaughter up in the Crab Apple tree, so this year I though maybe I could do the same shot for my 365 Self Portrait.  Well . . . I’m not a Spring Chicken anymore .. . but I gave it a good college try!  Oh to be young again!
