  • Ley,
    some people call the baobab "upside down tree" as the branches look like roots. When I read your story, this baobab came to mind when I thought how you must feel.

    I talked today with a friend about my divorce, which was 10 years ago and as friendly as a break-up can be. Even though we all are happy now, I still cry sometimes when I speak about it. Maybe that will never entirely go away, but it does get a lot easier.

    I am glad to hear you are finding something positive every day.

    In spite of the hole, the tree was sprouting new leaves.
