Birch © Karen Thiessen 2011
Thanksgiving weekend was a significant anniversary of a family member's death. He's buried at the foot of this birch tree in a quiet corner of a large cemetery. I was very young when he died but he had a huge impact on my life. He's gone but not forgotten.

It's interesting that we often choose to "settle" our loved ones under trees. We have a friend who is buried underneath one in Brooklyn. I feel like there's something about offering shade that translates into offering comfort.
