"Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other’s company. Only a few love to be alone." ~Jens Jensen, Siftings, 1939
According to Jens Jensen, "Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other’s company. Only a few love to be alone." While, I am not sure how much people enjoy each other's company (as much as they enjoy their own company) in the narcissistic world that we live in today; one thing appears certain: the tree (seen in the photograph posted above) seems like it might want to cozy up with anyone who sits on the steps.
I came upon this interesting sight of a brownstone whose staircase railing is intertwined with a tree trunk whilst walking in my neighborhood. I think it begs the question: Which came first?
Perhaps the folks dwelling in the apartment (pictured in the photograph posted below) under the branch-intertwined raiing have the answer?
