You brought that tree to life here, wish it could live on in your care out there too.

A cool write lady about a subject we seem to ignore more than we should. Amazing how plants can get "under your skin" and into your mind so that you care for them like family.

Oh, this is wonderful, Kris. A.E Houseman wrote:
"Give me a land of boughs in leaf,
A land of trees that stand;
Where trees are fallen there is grief;
I love no leafless land.
Always room for another tree. Thanks.

...caregiving to the slowly-dieing...a great punch of caring love...new will grow from the old.

Wow...so beautiful. Tending a garden is just like tending our souls. Hard work and heart-breaking at times.

I love the compassion in this one, the care of one species for another, the sense of union with the earth... all stuff I do so admire. You make that tool - well - a feelingless tool of shearing. I guess it is good it has no feelings or it couldn't do its job. Didn't you like Greg's Houseman poem? Thanks Kristina.

Is life dependant upon production? We are all connected on this planet. Everything is in motion. Should we stop, do we die? Your words have inspired plenty of thought. Thank you for sharing.
