Our Christmas story is a repeating tale. We first encountered the lone cedar tree in the field west of Dumas, Arkansas and figured there was a story behind it.  In this case our presumption was bolstered by facts. The story was one of human frailty and subsequent kindness — interrupted by the worst of human predatory behavior. The tree stands as a silent reminder of the story and the lesson of the conclusion. See our original post from December 21, 2008 and our re-write of the original story on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com.

Thanks for dropping by and Merry Christmas,
