about this story

Back in my younger years, my friend George and I were travelling through the alleys of Greece. The weather was hot, and finding shade almost seemed like a refreshing break from the blistering sun. Through our travels we encountered a group of protesters. These protesters were not ordinary protesters, they were protesting the regrowing of trees after deforesting efforts. This group appeared exhausted... maybe from spending the whole day in the heat with a toque on, maybe it was the heavy signs they were holding. George and I offered them cold water and listened to their opinion on the replenishment of forests. The group talked and talked about how trees just create more work for us as they drop their leave, but just then I had a flashback to a childhood camping trip. I was walking through a forest, amazed at the towering, strong trees that surround me. I feel the wind slowly push through the trees, stimulating every sense I have. I have never felt so alive, so connected with nature.

Immediately I return from my daze, to interrupt the group and begin to leave. They ask me "Where are you going? We are not done our talk!"

All I could say is "My yard could really use a new tree!"
