Wonder Woman and I went for a walk the other day, and happened upon this fallen tree, which apparently was felled by the little insects who made all of those little holes in the trunk.
There’s some kind of ready-made parable in all of this that goes something like, “See? You wouldn’t think some little bugs could knock over such a huge tree, would you? And yet, they did. Why, you can do anything if you put your mind to it, work hard and believe in yourself.”
It’s kind of like starting a blog and believing you can build up a big audience despite the fact that it seems completely improbable that hundreds of strangers would want to read about the dead tree you saw in the woods, for example. So thanks, y’all. Seriously.
