Tree of life

I made myself sit in the garden in the sun for a while today and as I sat there I thought about my blog and what to write. There’s a really large fir tree in our garden which towers over everything around it. I reckon it’s about fifty feet high now.

We’ve lived in the house for 15 years and the people before, who had a son in his thirties, had been here for 43 years when they left. We’re fairly sure he planted the tree as a boy after Christmas one year and it’s still growing. We’ve been told that it’s a forest tree which can grow up to 100 feet tall and unfortunately we’re in fairly close proximity to other houses so it might take one of them out if it fell.

Not quite sure what to do as I feel quite sentimental about this tree and the garden would feel empty without it. I was thinking, perhaps one year soon, we could offer it to the town council as the town square Christmas tree. At least it would finish its life with a glorified purpose. Then we could start again and plant a little one.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
