The tree I see is a birch tree projected onto a pink wall and it is waving in the wind. I know that if I try to climb it I will fall down once I am half way up because you can't climb on a tree that is projected onto a wall, you will fall down, once you tell yourself I can't climb on a tree that is projected onto a wall, about half way up the tree, and therefore you can't even say it's a birch tree, but you can say that it is windy—the birch trees say that all the time, and you can say you fell down, if you don't believe in trees when you fall down like so, like the birch tree that I fell down from I think it was your fault really, if you can hear me, you are definitely guilty and you are definitely a birch tree, or something else.
