  39. Dear Ruma, What incredible trees. I feel honored to be sitting before their images. I can imagine it must be so humbling to be there before them in person. Your photographs and words offer smiles in the heart and hope for beauty to be renewed. I feel so for those still in shelters and not knowing if their homes are safe to go home to . . . or if they ever can.
