4 . 1 3 . 1 7 

1. Life is incredibly beautiful, precisely because we don't last.

2. Whether by choice or by force, we will be transformed a thousand times over in this life.

3. A tree bends incredibly so. Sometimes with winds forcing it so strongly in many directions at once. We assume we can predict when and if the tree will break. During a storm, a gust of wind, a pounding rain. But sometimes, and more often, the tree weathers the storm. And one calm day, after the rain, after the strong gusts of wind twisting it every which way, the tree breaks quietly, softly folding over a neighbor's fence. As if to say, "I did it, and that was my destiny."
