Follow a tree!

Lucy at Loose and Leafy has picked up the torch from The Tree Year and is offering to link to and help coordinate tree followers this year.

If they (you) or anyone wants attention drawn to their ‘special tree’ posts on Loose and Leafy, let me know and I’ll put a link at the foot of my next post – whatever it’s about. No special day. No set time – just let me know if you post (either by leaving a comment or by emailing me at looseandleafy@googlemail.com). If enough people are following trees, I’ll add a tab with a list at the top of the blog.

The best thing about following trees, it seems to me, is their relatively slow rate of travel. Also, Lucy says, you can follow dead trees as well as living ones. Try doing that with people on Twitter!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.

  1. Grin. I put one up for you on FB. For others too.

  2. Lucy’s offer has inspired me to look for a tree on Cape Cod to follow for this year. I thin kit could be a great addition to our blog!
