Yes it is me Fred, on the Danube in Romania just as we entered the Delta. What a night that was and this tree I am sitting with spoke so loudly of things of the past.

Your picture with that tree is indeed a special moment in time captured for all who ever care to see Christine. I did wonder how our local professor came across that picture, but in going to the way way back machine, saw it was possible he got that from the blog you posted of your's and Cristian's Danube trip, but was never posted here on the forum thread.

As a kid "stuck" in a wilderness camp for troubled youths back in the early 80's for a year, I was fortunate enough to take the entire Suwanee River to it's delta into the Gulf of Mexico on a 28 day canoe trip with about 10 other kids and two counselors. No memorable pics with a tree speaking loudly of the past however, that would have to wait until decades later and remain undocumented.

Tree of life in the center
Tree of life all around
Tree of life growing taller
Rooted in the ground

Tree of life after lifetime
Tree of life never dies
Tree of Earth Mother Spirit
Tree of Father Sky

Borrowed from a friends FB post (thank you Thomas!) - and notice how the the tops of the trees gave each other space?

“Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.”
