Happy of the Day/ My Wild Life Part XXIV

And they will never know, for love I sold my soul

I went jogging through the woods today--why not? It was a balmy sixty degrees here in Southeastern Connecticut! Someone had decorated one of the dwarf pines that lined the path through the woods; a dozen or so shiny round ornaments hung from the still-wet branches.

I figured out that I pass approximately .25 people in the woods each day I go jogging, and I actually go pretty often. Every other day at least, except I was sort of bad for a week or two after NCTE (I did use the treadmill once when I was down there, and walked about 17 miles up and down the river walk). What this means to me is that whoever decorated that tree is an exceedingly cool human being.

That is very cool. It reminds me of a P.L.A.I.N (People Loving Art in Neighborhoods) project from the graphic novel "The Plain Janes" by Cecil Castellucci. Someone making the world a better place through art and keeping it on the down-low.

woohoo, second comment.
anyway, in my friend's backyard, they have wind catchers on their trees, and I thought that was pretty cool.

Hi Arielle!

I'll have to check that book out; sounds like something I'd like.

Take care,
Dan

Hey Abbott Black!

That does sound pretty cool. Right now all I have in the backyard is a dog run and a picnic table.

Take care,
Dan

We don't even have our tree up yet, so I wish you could find that guy who did that and ask him to decorate my family's tree (lol).
I loved Generation Dead, by the way.



ps.is that Karen on the cover of DG?

Hi G.Deadcatluver!

Too funny. And thank you for the compliment.

I like to think of our covergirl as Karen!

Take care,
Dan
