trees, embracing


In Offenbach, there is a painting on a garage door that I pass from time to time. 
It shows two trees standing next to each other, overlapping a bit. Since I saw
this picture I always think that that's the way trees are embracing each other, they
just grow into each other. Once they decide to do it, there is no going back. 
I was thinking of this, when I saw these two trees in Hamstead Heath last autumn. 
For now, it's not more than a hand shake. But there is no going back.
