My elementary school art teacher didn’t like my trees.
The drawing I had been working on was of a whole forest of them – with trunks that were bent and twisted all different directions.
“Trees grow straight up and down,” she criticized. “Not like that.” She made me start my drawing over.
I remembered this while I was hiking recently.
And I wanted to laugh every time I passed yet another example of nature showing that I had been correct all along.
