My entry shows the value of things around us: the tree is used to
symbolise the fact that life is never ending- even when we leave, things
may stay the same. I wrote this when I lost a close friend and had no
outlet other than writing to show how uncomfortable I felt continuing to
act normally when everything felt so wrong without her. Writing this
allowed me to explore these feelings and help me really get into writing
and creative outlets as a way to cope with my emotions when they
become over whelming.
