When Great Trees Fall Maya Angelou When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety.

I think it’s no surprise that if you find me in my house for long periods of time, I’ll definitely be searching my pantry to see what I can bake with.
