I thought it would be easy to learn to play the ukulele, but finding it not as simple as I thought. Maybe a little more effort on my part…

Chloe has become my constant companion. She rarely leaves my side.
I adore her.
We planted the small silver maple tree in our brand new suburban backyard over thirty years ago. Fast-growing, we read. It did grow quickly, providing the shade we sought, and leafy branches where birds could nest and forage. Every few years a bumper crop of little “whirlybirds” would rain down from its limbs.
Over time the tree has been ravaged by storms and brutally cut back by yellow-helmeted power company workers, giving it a pretty ragged appearance, especially in winter. But each spring, it clothes itself in beautiful leaves of green that hide its scars. Once again, it becomes our perfectly imperfect tree.
