    I'm Not, But My Old Car Is! :p

    my first car, a Geo Metro, more commonly referred to as the clown car, because of the small car with the annoying horn like they have in circuses on cartoons anyway. Well to make a long story short, it was raining, took a curve too sharp, overcorrected and went into the...

    I Seriously Love Trees

    I have always loved trees. I used ot climb trees when I was a kid. I used to hide in my tree on my farm to avoid abuse. I have observed how the trees endure; most bending instead of breaking, even when they do break they harbor life. I have a collection of tree photos. And, yes...

    I Am Proud of Who I Am

    I am a treehugger and am proud of it. I don't care what people think, I feel good about what I do. I'm happy to recycle. I love animals and want to save them. I used to talk to plants when I was younger. It annoys me when people roll their eyes or make fun of me, but I don't let...

    Treehugger Musings

    I love hugging trees. They just have such a comforting strength and stability. You know no matter how hard you squeeze, they won't react badly. Each tree gives life to so much else, bugs, birds, squirrels. Whenever I look at a tree, I just want to go and sit beneath it and look...
