I grew up in a house surrounded by pine trees. you know, like a Calvin & Hobbes upbringing with a thicket and a creek. moving to New York, I knew that I’d have to give some of that up, but I think I was a little spoiled in my youth.
I wanted a tree on my arm (a spruce at first, but aspens are my favorite. we kinda settled on an imaginary hybrid. if you are considering a tattoo in NY, go to Goose). I just needed a little nature back in my daily life. a little oxygen. a little bit of a reminder that I’ll return to trees sooner or later.
