Random Quote and Unrelated Photo of the Week

One student, taking a break, elaborated on the problem of holding on to traditions. "The trees," he said. "No one really agrees which one's which. The Tree of Sorrow was introduced to me as the Bodhisattva Tree. The tree at the end of field three is alternately called the Tree of Woe and the Tree of Sorrow. I'm in the Tree of Woe camp. The Tree of Sorrow and the Tree of Woe seem like names that could have been given because of the general loneliness factor, but I don't know."
