The Tree Of Life

- A sixty-five year-old apple tree is growing in my front yard. It stands perfectly centered in between my house, and my detached two-car garage. The base of its trunk leaves the ground at a slight angle, giving the impression that it’s leaning forward. The surrounding ground is un-even and bumpy with roots weaving in and out of the earth, as if they are seeking a breath of fresh air. Unlike the rough and deeply grooved surface usually associated with trees; my tree’s bark is smoother, and pimple like with sections scaling off in sheets....   [tags: Personal Narrative Descriptive Essays]

The Symbolism of the Christmas Tree in the Transformation of Nora

- The Symbolism of the Christmas Tree in the Transformation of Nora The idea of equality for women has been the subject of countless books, speeches, and performances for decades.
