As summer is beginning, it might be nice to take a moment to reflect on two sentinels that stand in Mountain Way Common sharing their life view with us. These two trees came from different backgrounds, typically live in different areas, and clearly, are unique from each other in their appearance. Yet, they have learned to live together. Both are better off for the relationship that they have forged with each other. It is a bit messy with entangled roots and limbs, but as they soar together to reach the sky, they make a statement that we should all try to heed. Support each other no matter what your differences are. By growing together you will be stronger than if you were on your own.
