In the ten years since I took this photo the trail has been abandoned and the tree has rotted away.

      As a further nail in the coffin, the city is building a bypass through that spot now. Don’t Panic.

    I walked along an empty path
    I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
    Is this the Earth, beneath my feet?
    Sat by the river and it made me complete.

    Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
    I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

    And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
    Talk about it somewhere only we know?
    This could be the end of everything
    So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?

    I just finished chainsaw training so I can help maintain trails by removing hazards like that. There is a reason we call tes over trails like that ‘widow makers’. If you don’t help maintain good things we lose them.

    They renamed the town on my passport.

    “Where were ya born?”

    “I can’t say it right”

    “Write it here”

    “I can’t remember the special letters.”
