One of the books that I enjoyed reading to my daughters when they were younger was The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. At the end of the book, an old man returned to the tree he knew as a young boy, but the tree was only a stump. The old man just wanted a place to sit down, so he sat on the stump, and the man and the tree were happy.
I’m not yet an old man, and I had never seen this tree before today, but I did appreciate a place to sit down and type out a few thoughts. And if it meant acting out a children’s book, all the better.
May everyone have a chance to act out a story some day.
