Anthropomorphism is the recognition of people-like characteristics in animals, plants or non-living things. This tree can be found in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. During the time of slavery in the South, slave ships were often unable to make it through the Outer Banks because of the treacherous landscapes. From the looks of this picture, it seems as if they may have lost some passengers along the way.
Today I met Georgia and Lawrence, both 91. They’ve been married for 70 years, have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I asked about their relationship and how it started. Without hesitation, Lawrence recalled everything right down to what she was wearing.(A ‘fine black dress, but I was wearing a shabby red plaid shirt, I wasn’t expecting to see her’) Georgia laughed about this and when he talked about how hard to get she was. Later on, I asked what their ‘secret’ was and Lawrence replied “This!” gesturing to the water. “We always go back to the sea.”
