"Maybe the limbs of a broken tree will heal themselves in time
Or maybe the limbs from that broken tree will petrify...
Hard as stone."
(from 'Broken Tree' by Sixfeetdeep)
Bruised, battered, broken... the tree stands still in the face of whatever life may throw, facing the light, leaving the shadows behind... Weathered. worn-out, wrinkly, the tree still stands still, courageous in its stance against those that are prettier, taller, stronger. Mother Earth's gift to mankind, the great sage teaches mankind the utmost lesson - resilience against all odds.

ps. Not much resilience left in me after an hour long figt with Internet Explorer. Something did catch my eye on the internet though as I was looking for the lyrics: Do check out http://www.photonet/photodb/photo?photo_id=1844278 for a different take on the whole "Broken" theme.
