Saying Goodbye to the Trees

There is a vacant lot across the road from our house. The people who own the property have decided to cut the timber off the land. They started cutting at the back of the property on Wednesday. Jilda was off and it was a beautiful day but she couldn't spend time outside for the sound of falling trees. I get a newspaper daily and I'm not so naive that I don't know from where that paper comes. But sometimes you forget until something brings it home to you. We have lots of trees in our yard and the wildlife that lives across the road will surely move over to our house. We might lose trees to wildfire, to storms, or to disease, but we won't lose trees to chainsaws except under rare circumstances....and even then it will not be done light heartedly.
You can call me a tree hugger if you like, but on this rainy Sunday morning in September I am saying goodbye to the trees.
