The little fir tree… by atchoo

The little fir tree…

Today's shot reminds me of a story by the Danish writer and poet Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875)… When I was a child my beloved Grandfather would read aloud all the fairytales of H.C. Andersen (and the ones by the Grimm brothers and others)... One of the stories I remember was the one about the little fir tree. H.C. Andersen wrote this story in 1845, and the morale of it is that life is best lived in the moment - that we miss out when we focus on what we don't have instead of enjoying what we do.

If anyone is curious to read the story, you can find it here:
