A New Start With A New Tree



Today my new tree was planted and I cleaned up the garden some. It looks a whole lot better. I did nothing since I gave Big Sammy, my Golden Retriever away in June, and the trumpet vines ate mostly everything, the small trees died, and I had my big Weeping Willow pulled out in August. But I never went back there. I left the dog shit and the dead birds there. Somehow the dog shit disappeared. I won't ask why or how. I guess maybe I've accepted losing Sammy. He used to basically tear up the house when he was left alone but I loved him. Moon the kitten loved him too. I took him all the way out to Lancaster to the Golden Retriever Rescue and he was adopted in four days despite his appetite for chairs, pillows, rugs and doors. I took three months of his Paxil prescription, his pillows with their clean pillow cases, his bones, toys, a giant bag of his high-end food, and his pictures frolicking with his darling kitten. I think I took more stuff but I can't remember; my mind was too fogged by grief and ativan. Plus I was lost and hysterical. I always forget when I'm taking on way more than I can do, hoping I'll do it anyway, only to have to give it up so sadly in the end.

Life is like a huge tree with anything you want in life growing in it. It has an inexhaustible supply of anything you want in life. There are many ladders below the tree.

When you are born you are placed at the bottom of the ladder, given a slap on the ass, and told to climb. As you climb take all you want from life. Forget any rules you ever heard of: the commandments, civil law, crimal law etc. Just don't break the only rule in my system....

DON'T KNOCK OVER THE OTHER PERSONS LADDER AS HE/SHE CLIMBS

I think there's a lot more to life than what the above message seems to imply. And we're kinda obligated to give back too. In Paul's metaphor, I think we sometimes share ladders, give a hand up, or get one. Also, maybe there is a rule, something like, Give love...
