Fascinated by this tree


On a recent trip to Hilo, I was fascinated by this tree, almost every leaf of which was scratched with names and memories.

Leafscratch03There was something profound about seeing all these memories (and people) brought together on a living, growing thing. So much so that I lost all interest in the nearby waterfall... obviously, so did many others!
