Fantastic Friday: may the trees always fall just close enough

If you’ve been reading my blog, you may remember back in September when I blogged about the tree that almost hit me as I was driving (you can read the post here: https://valmuller.com/2020/09/04/fantastic-friday-i-get-to/ )

The event stayed with me for the rest of 2020, and it has made me a more patient, understanding person. As strange as it sounds, I’m glad it happened.

I wanted to open up 2021 by sharing a set of gifts I made for family members using part of the fallen tree. It was a concept I had in mind soon after the tree fell, something my subconscious knew as I purchased the few required supplies to carry out the work.

And here is the result:

 

The note I sent with the gifts…

 

From trunk…

to slices…

and a little paint…

Many people are counting on 2021 to carry us out of the hot mess that is 2020. But bad things are always going to happen. Some can be avoided, and some simply can’t. The trees will always fall. Here’s to hoping that in 2021, they fall only just close enough.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!
