For the past few years, every time I go to the Tangent post office during the winter, I see a big, beautiful weeping willow tree across the road with its bare limbs that could be such a good painting subject. I never found the right time to go set up and paint on location and always forgot to take my camera along. So Wednesday, hopefully before the willow had started leafing out, I made a special trip to take a photo of the tree so I could at least paint from the photo.
When I got to the post office and looked across the road, I saw that the willow tree had been cut down. It was like a kick in the stomach.
...One of those "life lessons." If you really want to do something, you better go ahead and do it, or the opportunity may be gone tomorrow.
