Once upon a time there was a tree. A tree with knarled, tangled branches and large blooming flowers. Everyone in town used to come sit under this tree for shade from the burning sun.
One day the tree got fed up with everyone stealing his shade...so he pulled his roots up one by one and started wading north. He pushed past the soil with his deep roots and he pushed past the brush and the wind. The people cried out to him,
"Please don't leave, please don't go, we love you!"
But the tree knew that it was not him they loved, but what he could give to them.
So he continued on his quest to the North.
