Comments: Me as a tree?? Though I went for a straight forward tree it was difficult to make a decision as to what kind. Finally decided that, given my age, it would be a winter tree and that if I were a tree, I'd probably be one of those midwestern ones ... a box elder or black willow ...not elegant... but surviving almost anywhere.... thriving in the middle or on edges of fields but equally at home and tenacious in an urban empty lot.
