A Hard, Noisy Goodbye to a Friend

For the last 10 years or so of my life, living in a 100 year old cottage some ten miles south of San Diego, CA in the town of National City at the Sweetwater Zen Center. Guarding my back door, and the entrance to the Quan Yin Garden has been a towering, also 100 year old, palm tree along with two others that march past two more cottages, the third one overlooking a busy city street.
