I dont litter, Im an environmentally conscious chap, I appreciate nature, I love the BBC Planet Earth Series (and own them all), I force down the mental throat of all who know me the importance, beauty and brilliance of the natural world that surrounds us and all its wonders, YET I STILL HAVENT PLANTED A SINGLE TREE??!?
hmmm, I guess the “seeds” I have planted in the minds and hearts of those around me have carried weight like a tree and those ideas i have planted GROW too. I feel good about that. I may, philosophically speaking, mark this goal as completed in the sense that I have planted many fruit bearing seeds and goodness wherever I may roam. True story
Why am i so worried that if i plant it it wont be there to come back to see years from now. Its like everything else; I hate sowing a relationship/friendship or even a close tie to a job because im afraid to lose any of it. Same thing with a stupid tree. If I plant it im still not even in control of what happens to it from here on out. its at the mercy of the rest of the bastards in the world. Sorry if i seem so upset right now. But I am. Things are not so chipper like they have been for so long. well, at least im just being real and not trying to convince myself that everything IS ok, because its not. Funny, this is the longest entry in a month…under “plant a tree”, and its not even really about a tree. is it?
This is my Birthday and I cant wait to plant trees!
Ive also decided that when I have kids I will plant trees in several locations when they are born so they can visit them as they both grow together
on my way to planting some greenery for the scenery!!
