Un albero si innamora di un bambino. Un bambino si innamora di un albero. L'albero gli regala i suoi frutti. Il bambino gioca con le sue fronde. L'albero lo ripara alla sua ombra. Il bambino cresce, diventa sempre più esigente. L'albero invece è sempre lì, immutabile e disponibile. Felicità, tristezza, amore avrebbero potuto essere sentimenti vissuti allo stesso modo da un uomo e da un albero, poiché entrambi sono parte della natura. Ma gli equilibri sono stati alterati e l'amore incondizionato, la capacità di donare e di accettare l'altro in qualsiasi fase della sua vita sono rimaste prerogative di pochi: dei veri eroi del nostro tempo.

Overbearing, even. But I don't agree. Some fascinating theories have been put forth about The Giving Tree. It's d Leggi tutto
