We explained we like trees. “Sure,” she said. “This one time I did a zombie ceremony.”
“Yay trees!” we said. For the last few months we’ve been growing a black spruce sapling on our porch. During our ceremony we’ll find it a bigger home and then plant it in our yard the next day.
We’d love to see the tree grow as we grow. And It all connects in this wonderful circle of being: the tiny tree we’re planting echoes the tiny trees on our rings.
