Here I am again, thinking about writing

and hanging out with trees.

... And some things that I love but I'm pretty bad at ...


  • Singing
  • Gardening
  • Multitasking
  • Walking near creeks without falling in
  • Writing without talking out loud

Some things that I love...


  • Eating popcorn with lots of butter
  • Laughing  (sometimes while eating popcorn)
  • Rain 
  • Yoga  (but not in the rain)
  • Cooking
  • Thinking and talking (usually at the same time)
  • Trees
  • People
  • Games  (especially with other people, if they're thinking games that are about trees... wow!)

... And some things that I don't love ...


  • mean people
  • dusting the house
  • watermelon
  • waking up early
  • math (sorry, I'm just being honest here.)
