A Giant Towers over Needles sharper than The woodpecker's beak that Jabs through bark to create a home. Creepy-crawlies with more than the one Leg of the great giver of shade dwell among the far Stretching toes that reach deep into the cool substance of life. The tree of life. The life of a tree.
Movie: Inside Out (2016) I'm increasingly astounded by the stories that the big animated studios have been releasing recently. While this was primarily marketed as a children's story, it had a lot more depth than its ancestors such as Madagascar or Cars.
