One of the doodles reminds me that when I was young I used to more or less draw boxes on top of boxes, that ended up looking like steps.. My favourite tree to doodle at that time was the tall thin poplar tree.  I didn't have much time to doodle after I married but did notice that when I was drawing pictures with the young ones, my tree shapes had changed to more or less circular greenery atop healthy trunks.

I've since read that I could have been expressing a desire to climb the steps to success.
