If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

I happened to catch a shot of this maple tree by the pond just as a gull was passing by. It reminded me of a variation on a Christmas tree, with a maple instead of a pine and a gull filling in for a dove or angel. This also serves as a symbol of transition; from fall to winter; and life to death. It is dedicated to my Godfather, George Austin, who is now in hospice care.
