Think of Prince Albert piercings, Bowie knives and Mt Everest. These wonderful things will forever be synonymous with the men they’re named after. While no doubt Freud would have something complicated to say about this kind of thing, it cannot be denied that having the worlds highest mountain named after you would be great for the ego! 229 more words
I frequently pass by this beautiful, giant cottonwood tree on my daily outings. Its exterior harbors a plethora of colors and textures with moss and spiderwebs hanging their tapestries from its massive frame. My eyes scale up its sublime form, fingers transversing a mountain of bark, shivers running down my spine, as I feel a deeply-rooted connection between its life and mine. In honor of Earth Day (or any day for that matter), get outside, find an ancient tree and familiarize yourself with a piece of history.
