My plan was to take another crack at sketching the steeple that I had failed at so miserably a few weeks ago, so I pulled into the Calvary Christian Assembly’s parking lot at Northeast 68th and Roosevelt Way Northeast. As I drove around looking for a strategic parking space, I suddenly spotted a huge plum tree just beginning to blossom. Even with the ugly van parked in front of it and an equally unattractive utility pole next to it, the tree was a magnificent harbinger of spring.
Two reasons to rejoice: its cheerful pink color against the drab overcast sky and its presence that distracted me from an annoying perspective study.
