A big tree is a symbol of strength

In our culture the big tree signifies strength. Old folks say that the trees are tested by strong typhoons. If they stay upright then they are strong otherwise it will be felled by the strong winds of the typhoon.

When I chance upon a big tree, I always take a picture of myself or a selfie. The big tree means it is old and old things have an aura not only of strength but also of longevity. Taking a picture with a long-lifer is like making me stronger with a long life span.
