    Sing For The Trees

    Not only do I hug trees but I also sing for them. In early January I had an idea to sing to trees on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. I created an event and posted it on Facebook. Within a day, people who I didn't know, began to sign up. On April 22, 2010 over 3,000...

    Deforestation and monocultures to replace is

    not only abuse to the life that provides our oxygen, but genocide to numerous plant species that could have potential cures to the ailments that people suffer now, or those to come in a future time.

    After I hug a tree I feel clean and pure. I know that all the negative energy goes right down into the ground. Sitting with my back to the tree and my palms to the ground works good too.

    A Tree From My Past...

    As a child, I had a pretty dysfunctional family; a mom who wrestled with her own darknesses and was regularly drunk, a father who was a workaholic and rarely home, and two older brothers who had a habit of teasing and torturing me when I wanted to tag along with them wherever...
