The trees in Pennsylvania never seem to diminish. They stand just as tall in summer green as they do beneath a weight of winter snow. I wish that I could say the same goes for me, but the winter breaks me -- chapping my lips and turning my skin shades of purple and blue. It reminds me I am small and weak. A strong wind could bring me to my knees. The only other thing that has such an effect on me is you.
