Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more? Have you found a cute picture or a video that makes you smile? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your life a little happier?

The Language of Trees

I'm often bemused by the things other people don't know, in this case, the language of trees.  It's one of the things that "civilized" people have forgotten, but forest dwellers know.  

And then there are redwoods.  Redwoods are LOUD.  The forest itself is surprisingly quiet in terms of sound, but the presence and voice of the trees are big.  The sounds they make have an expanse even when they don't have a lot of volume -- although they're capable of volume too, when they feel like it.  And they control everything.  These are creatures who reach up into the sky and wring the clouds like a dishrag.  They're powerful.
