Recently, I've wondered if I'm becoming a tree.

I know it sounds absurd. But my family does come from oak trees.

For the past few months, I've felt different. My limbs have felt heavy, wooden when I try to move. My skin feels scratchy, rough like bark. My chest feels tight, as if it is hardening. My knees ache in the wind, cracking and crunching, as if my bones are turning to sap.

I'm not sure how long I have. I'm not sure when I will turn into a tree. But I don't think it would be a bad life.

    If you are turning into a tree, Sarah , lets hope we get more haunting and intriguing tales before the process is complete. -)
