Early in its life a young pine tree suffered some unknown damage and one sprout became two. Now two trunks wind around one another like fraternal twins, each lending support to the other. Over time, ground underneath this pine washes away, grain by sandy grain, with each steady slap of water stirred by weekend boaters. A couple of years ago a channel formed, marooning tree on tiny island, and now another channel further divides its world. One massive root spans the gap, temporarily holding this tiny world together. In time both tree and its tiny island home will disappear. Such is life. Such is one of the many puzzles and mysteries waiting to be discovered on Lake Jocassee, for anyone curious enough to slow down and look.~K
