This is Willow. She is a wire-haired/ double dapple Dachshund. She is completely deaf, and blind in her blue (right) eye only. She loves chicken, stuffed animals, smelling the wind, and cuddling up to peoples butts!! (from @bakaguts)
That’s the problem with cutting down a tree. No one tells you how dangerous it might be. Sure they’ll warn you about falling branches, and staying out of the way while the job is being done, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about how the tree you are about to cut down might be the only thing standing between you and something very bad. Maybe that’s the reason trees have been the object of worship throughout history. Could it be because they are extremely good at keeping things out of our world that we don’t want in it? Or it could be that it wasn’t the tree that was being worshiped, but rather whatever it was that the tree was keeping at bay?
Unfortunately for me, the reason our ancestors started worshiping trees in the first place is something that most of us have long forgotten. Until now.
Merry Christmas gnarledpaw supporters! There’s some confusion on the part of the shipping staff. Although snuggled into their Christmas blankets, they’re at the ready in case UPS or FedEx arrives with yarn for dyeing! A beautiful, sunny day with fresh snow, but cold… just 14 outside.
