I watched as a green, full oak tree was disfigured today in the park. The men took each limb down one by one and then tossed the pared off pieces into a shredder, there was a wild flurry of leaf dust that kept getting caught to my lips. The breeze made the greenest of the leaves sway in communication with the ones still attached at the trunk. I don’t understand why we destroy what gives us life.
