As if it were pirouetting itself to life, this ancient and massive magnolia tree unfurls its waxy green and suede-skinned leaves in the Virginia sun.   When I looked upward at this specimen, I was fascinated by its powerful but delicate grace with limbs that seemed to be simultanelously chaotic yet controlled as they shot outward from the tree’s braided trunk.  I just stood there gazing heavenward for the longest time, totally captivated by this beautiful whirling dervish.
