You Are Romanticism

You are likely to see the world as it should be, not as it is.
You prefer to celebrate the great things people do... not the horrors they're capable of.
For you, there is nothing more inspiring than a great hero.
You believe that great art reflects the artist's imagination and true ideals.

Thanks for your kind comments about the tree. The worst part now is knowing that there isn't anything I can do to bring it back. Plus I feel bad for being angry with the office staff at the rental office when we went to ask WHY?

The ash trees around here were taken down because of the emerald ash borer infestation. There was no good reason to take down this tree. The rental office emphasized that it is the owner's property and he can do what he wants with it. They might notice if we planted a new tree (or put dog doo on their doorstep). Sigh . . .

Star tree

We are so upset and so veryvery angry!!! The idiots who run our apartment complex cut down this beautiful, wonderful living tree today. It was right in front of our neighbor's house, and it provided a little shade for our apartment. The front of our apartment faces west, so it gets extremely hot in the afternoon when the sun shines full on it. We've burned ourselves on our metal front door before.

Molly and I were just sobbing about it. We stormed over to the management office and demanded to know why they'd slaughtered it. The person there hemmed and hawed about some dead stuff in it and liability, etc. Just trim the dead stuff out, idiots! Then she said that the seed bobbles (she called them burrs) were the reason -- people twisted their ankles on them or something. NO GOOD REASON!!!!!

And now the poor tree is dead. It was a beautiful sweetgum tree with star shaped leaves and spikey seed bobbles. When they cut it down, you could see that there was even a star in the center of the trunk. Moronic losers, not respecting living things. They already took out 47 ash trees in the complex this year. They said that we still have lots of trees. Not by our place. And that is no excuse to lose this one. The olive tree across the road that provided some shade blew down in a storm this summer. I love trees. I hate people who destroy them.
