Birds on a Wire, Tree Stuff

So I went grocery shopping today, and travelling down the highway I saw a double light full of birds with their feathers all puffed out. I couldn’t id them at 60 mph – today is one of those days that the sky has a comforter on itself, so they looked brown to me. As the light fixture gently slopes down to a point in the middle, it reminded me of the little bird movie that I’ve seen a million times on the Monsters, Inc. DVD, and it never fails to crack me up. Do you know the bird movie I’m referring to?

My Mom and Dad bought me some wonderful presents for my birthday. The first book is an excellent and quick read. After reading it, it makes me want to go out and plant trees all over the place.

The second book I’ve been drooling over since I first saw it at Barnes & Noble in Chandler, AZ in March. Last week when Mom and I were in B&N I picked it up because I love looking at the buttress roots. She said yesterday she wanted to yell at me in the store to put the book down!


I simply love looking at trees from around the world, any shape, any size. I could spend the rest of my life in a forest, any forest, just give me a forest

And this last item is a calendar called “Tree” by James Balog, who also has a book by the same title:


This is a large calendar and I’m thinking it will take a prime spot on one of my walls as if it were a piece of art instead of on the side of the fridge where my yearly calendar normally hangs.
