This Secret Whisper Tree was buried above it’s ear in house debris and mudflow in Montecito, California. (ThomasFire and Flood 2017)

After the Thomas Flood I found the “Flesh Wound” tree featured below.  (“The Secret Whisper” tree about 200 yards away.) 

This video is a joke trying to make light of a bad situation using a Monty Python sketch.  There’s an aerial photo for context.

I enjoyed the “Flesh Wound” tree because my home loss was similar to the black night in the sketch!   I was literally injured and left without the ability to move for a long time. 

Laughter heals in even the most difficult situations.  In fact that is when it is needed the MOST.
