And so it goes...

And so she comes to dream herself a tree.

~H. Crane

I had to cut back a tree tonight.  I don't think I've ever done that before.  The saw, the gloves, the works.  It was amazing.  And it hurt me to do it.  I apologized to the tree at the first cut.  And when it was all over, I looked around and realized it was a life changing decision.  It will change things now.

How could it not?

(images: moi: the tree lover series:  i have an awful lot of photos of trees. for MORE tree love: ny mag)

for the love of god, can someone please help me get this little blue green SU button off of here?!

I totally understand. I have a sad story about an old tree cut down and things did change. i still don't know if that change was good or bad but we remember the tree. little histories.

coming to SF in January mol!

Could you use little bits of the tree in your art -sort of giving it a new life? Wood is good, it lasts a very long time.

I love your blog posts-you are a writer and an artist.
