Sounds deep I know. And turns out is true when it comes to trees. I had read about a sculpture in Roswell that I very much wanted to visit. I Googled, and Search-ed, and asked.....but could not find any reference to the Tree of Life.
Because it's called the Tree of Knowledge! Oops....
Fortunately I remember it might be at the library and that finally leads me to the piece - on the corner of Pennsylvania and 3rd Street.

Keeping with the "learning about stuff" theme for our Saturday, we next visit the International UFO Museum and Research Center.
As expected, the initial focus is on the 1947 crash site discovery just outside the city of Roswell. But there is a lot of other well-presented information on extra-terrestrial sightings, crop circles, proved hoaxes, and ancient cultures.
We both find it hard to believe we could possibly be the only life in this huge universe, so we entered with minds wide open. Tessa is neutral on the subject.
The amount of written documentation, witness statements, sworn affidavits and testimony from both military personnel and local citizens is staggering. It is much easier to believe that a spacecraft crashed with alien life forms aboard, than it is to believe it was a weather balloon.

|The next day the story was changed to the crash of a weather balloon|
|including numerous military documents|
|2002 excavation of the original site produced no additional evidence|
|Maybe a ship, but one of ours|
|Maybe a cover-up, but for a logical reason|
|I hope someone is still working on these|
