Part of what I like about this tree is what lies under it.

"I am not interested, my friend, in your religion or if you are religious or not. What really is important to me is your behavior in front of your peers, family, work, community, and in front of the world. Remember, the Universe is the echo of our actions and our thoughts".

The tense arms hung on(collided) on the ground as if he wanted to find a little of life! It is the moving image which questions about our future or our own life!! Haughtiness!!
