That Time I Climbed a Tree For the First Time!

Hello all you lovely, wonderful, fantastic people! Right now I am outside, sitting in a park (actually, right now I’m sitting at home, but I’m typing what I wrote in the park). Last night was not a good night, not for lack of trying on my part, this being a positive person thing is hard. This morning I found myself walking home from work and I was not happy.

I wanted to start off by talking about that oh-so-wonderful thing we call love. We hate feeling it, love feeling it, feel it on different levels, in different ways, for inanimate objects, pets, ideas, people. How do you love? What a diverse and strange feeling/emotion/word. It’s kinda awesome! When we’re children love comes so easily and naturally. We fall in love almost instantly with things, people, and places. We make best friends on the playground within five minutes just because someone is wearing our favorite color or likes ‘My Little Pony’. However, as we grow up we start to give…
