Yesterday, I waited by a tree. I was waiting for a letter to arrive. While waiting, I saw a gecko crawling up the trunk of the tree. As soon as it came up to the level of my eye, it held still and stared at me for a little while. Then seeing that I didn’t move, continued its climb. You might perhaps wonder what sort of letter I was waiting for, and why it was that I had to wait beside a tree. I’ll tell you that I don’t know; I just knew that I had to wait for a letter beside a tree. And if never comes (it never came), then so it be. By the time I had given up hope, the gecko had already reached the topmost branches.
