Spending today wearing ripped denim and listening to this song. Makes me feel like I’m in High School again, a time when I wanted so badly to be Kim Deal (think I still do).

The Tree of Life in Bahrain is one of the world’s loneliest trees. The mesquite tree sits at the highest point in the barren desert of Bahrain, hundreds of miles from the another natural tree and is thought to have tap roots reaching hundreds of feet down to aquifers. The exact age of the tree is unknown though it’s generally believed to be more than 400 years old.

Lacking any visible source of water, the 32-foot mesquite tree has baffled visitors and scientists alike for its entire life as it has continued to grow. Although the mesquite tree is known for holding a great deal of water in its massive root system, there is still no source of water in sight. Even arid vegetation needs water to survive, which makes Bahrain’s Tree of Life even more mysterious.

Without a rational explanation for the tree’s biological success, many have turned to mythology and religion for answers. Some assert that Enki, an ancient god of water in Babylonian and Sumerian mythology, protects the tree. Others still believe the site is the historical location of the Garden of Eden.

Whatever the answer, the tree has shown no sign of dying, and continues to inspire as it stands proudly in the tiny desert nation. Only a mile from the tree is the hazy Jebel Dukhan, the highest point in Bahrain. From 440 feet above sea level, the hill allows for a true appreciation of the barren landscape in which this tree has thrived.

Slice Inlay rings. Hello lovelies.

Things I didn’t used to like but now I do:

The smell of lavender

Beets
Having painted toenails
The Grateful Dead
My parents

Holy River - Lobo Marino

Local bands…Richmond has SO many good ones, but these guys are among my very favorites. One of the coolest moments of my life happened while they were on stage (that’s not an exaggeration).
