You separate “animate” and “inanimate”.
On what basis?
No wonder there is confusion.
If you are seeking a fish, why climb a tree?

  2. Because perhaps, once we climb and then fall into the sea, we might find what we were looking for: Fish.

    • I was thinking of the traditional phrase “barking up the wrong tree”. Of course, if there was a sea handy … 😛

      (It was hard to recognise you for a moment there. 😀 )


  3. Is there not spirit in a cliff rising from the desert into the morning sun?
    Does not a tree drink water, which sustains a fish in a different way than it sustains a tree?
    I am sure the bald eagle can answer the last question as it hulks high in the branches of a tall pine, watching for the season’s first salmon to swim into a river flowing from the creeks where salmon spawn.
    I am equally sure that I shall not climb a tree to seek a fish.

      I am well on with my long overdue reply to your e-mail. It should be completed today, or at least that’s the plan. 🙂


  4. Ah, but the eagle may poise itself on the top of a tree limb as it casts its eye over the river…why not climb a tree to look for a fish? The fish is in the eagle’s eye….

    I think I am getting too lazy to chase anything as well. Things come along eventually. 🙂
