Dreaming: A Tree Falls
Judging by my dream last night, I'd say soon. In the dream I was using a handy new tool--a laser pruning device--to trim the branches from very high in a tree in the yard. We're talking skyscraper high. I wasn't too skilled at using the pruner, though, and I cut too much. A big chunk of that tree came crashing down, but it fell not in my yard but on a tree in the neighbor's yard, bringing that tree down with it. And then a huge walnut tree in the neighbor's hard also fell, just missing his house.
Apart from thinking that the tree in my yard is doomed, I'm also wondering if I can get a patent on this laser pruner, which seems like a great idea--in the right hands.
