If you go to this website, you can have a tree planted. It doesn't cost you anything. The site's sponsor ( it changes daily ) pays for it. You can make this your homepage, or you can do what I did and added a button to my custom links bar. That way I remember to go by every day and have a tree planted. What an easy way to do some good. Also, if any of you have your own web pages, they have buttons that you can add to your own page that will help spread the word. Check it out! www.tree4life.com/ingles/ingles.htm
I took it and watched it for a moment, feeling it purr, pulse and whisper.a vast potential . It sighed without movement and stood aged a hundred years from now. It yielded and swayed snow falls and hot hot suns and Rains that would drown a fish. I brought it to my face so that i might smell it , know it bettter through my senses. YOu know what it was? It was a Balsam Pine.. and Now i know.. I know that cats can lick lint from my shirt sleeve and I know That one dream out there that i climb in, is a Balsam Pine... and always will be .. for meee. . thankyou for the link... what a lovely act...
Im not sorry youre friend died. nor when its youre turn or mine ... but rather I smile as i do know, there are more trees to play in becasue of you.. youre friend knows too!!!!! peace.... peter
Woo hoo!! thanks Jeff....I planted a tree!! or two or......I wonder how long it would take to bring the forest back to the North American continent? And where are they planting these trees??
What is is, what will be will be. Illusion in reality, reality in illusion. Live today, your breathing now, maybe not tomorrow. Look for the lessons in the bad, revel in the good. Listen to all, but believe in something. Dont forget to LOVE!
The sofffftness that i found lying behind the shade of a crytomerian continues to shy me. It is a place where the wind collects behind every tine.. behind each blush of pink going to red always always behind the swaying of violins talking with goddess mind. the uttter silence of no space as the nowind collects its power inside while cats prowl natures carpet. I plant my rooots deep inside
I hate to see you go Dwayne, but if that's your decision, nobody can nor should change that. Hope you'll get my private message... It's really unfortunate that one bad apple can ruin this fun-loving-learning experience we all shared.
The healing tree with in us can and should be climbed. Regularly. Although most species of otter can clearly be seen on the ground and in the water, but, one is very lucky to find (in the wild) the genus known as Otterous Scampertreeous... Im not sure of the exact date that otters left the trees, but i am sure that some of us are still in them and often need a ladder
bb? I am glad i have something that you enjoy... I often let my eyes listen and write what is see....
d? where you flying off to...? watch that snow!.. Enjoy...
About "real" healing trees still... I believe I had one when I was a child. It was a big European maple in our garden, the biggest tree around. I remember how nice it was to sit underneath it, play with its leaves and look at the ants that nested in the tree. The bark always felt so warm in the sunshine. It gave me a feeling of security and solace whenever I needed it. I had a connection with the tree, one I haven't had ever since.
When I was about 20, my parents decided to take the tree down. I had just got back from a visit to my boyfriend who then lived in Holland, and I was quite emotional. My father tried to command me to help with the work and I refused. It grew into a huge issue, I remember a lot of shouting and crying. My little sister was against the whole thing, too, and I think my parents still to this day don't understand what that single tree really meant for us.
Those are the best places for blue birds .Those moments when the maple calls body memeory and power. The tree in our life is such a vital connection to the larger awareness and connectivity to the planet, that without , we would soon perish. and with it gone some of our dreams seem harder to hold..... Blue? when you go back to the tree that you love? how do you go back? Are there other connections? what are they? Do you still have that tree? Is there another one in youre life now? What is it like and is there a dialoge between youre past/ present tree and do you have a ladder?...p
peter, that tree doesn't exist anymore physically. Like I said, it was cut down years ago. I don't have a tree anymore. I never found another one so close to me. I'm generally a tree lover, but that one tree was exceptionally special to me.
I never had a ladder, so I never climbed the tree. It remained a longing and a mystery.
I recently discovered the power and awe of date palms. I've always loved palm trees, but only now did I have the experience to walk in a date palm oasis. I think I've found a new family. Only that one is somewhat far away....

Bluebird... YOU still have that tree. When you are quiet sometime and you can travel there, go climb it. touch it, listen, taste it as you taste time, Hear its music it left you. Feel its skin and the garden that surrrounds its own knowing. It is still there!!!! I know it is becasue you took me there. And maybe as you descend into view of youre fathers's eyes, take the time to show him the beauty of youre friend, gently love him as you loved the tree. Hug him and the tree. equal . knowing. Peacefull.... bb? thanks for reminding me of Maple. Their sweet lifeforce moistens my circleflour and reminds me that they share still.p.
I see an old man near the glowing tree. His eyes are casting about for something familar as he continues looking around. It almost feeels like he doesnt know where he is.I dont recognize him and I dont think he is staying at the apartments. He looks a bit worried but also looks relaxed.... i'm going to shut the computer down and go talk to him. I didnt notice it before, but i do now. He is wearing a whilte cap, a white sweater , a white belt, pants and sneakers. white socks too... The glowing tree is that magnificent white birch i told you about the other day. hmmm.... its starting to snow... white all around. I will be right back....
