the happy tree



Bous de Boulonge, Paris

Most mornings I wander around the truly splendid and magnificent Bois de Boulogne . Most mornings I just wander with my ears plugged into my podcast ( Bill Mahers 'real time' or music loud enough to scare the leafs silly) and look at all the bois (woods) have to offer, birds rabbits, pheasant, grouse, hookers. I usually take my prescribed route until one day I decided to go a little off the beaten path. Most of the trees have turned into a pyrotechnic show of unequal proportion. Most except for this very large old tree.It looked like it had seen better days.On close inspection I realized why, as I'm sure you can see from the photo above. I call it the 'happy tree' It's located just yards from a very busy hooker area where business is brisk. I now make the happy tree part of my morning walk and you will all be happy to hear that the tree isn't dying, its just taking a well earned rest till next spring.

Oh, the tree is a damn tragedy...so close to the hole...and yet teasingly so so far away...ah...like me.
