A Box Of Paints And A Guitar

Tree Of Life websiteTree Of Life, a blog written by a man with a box of paints and a guitar. I don’t remember how I stumbled on his site (maybe he linked to me – I don’t remember), but I read it regularly now: he posts nice photos, and writes funny observations about his life. I liked his Got my Mojo workin’ post in particular, where he writes about a musician friend getting excited about music again. He concludes:

Sometimes there is just more satisfaction in seeing something good happening for someone else who deserves it than there is to have something good happen for you personally.

In his recent Mature? Like mouldy old Cheese? post, he tries to figure out if he’s “mature”:

To become more developed mentally and emotionally and behave in a responsible way. Uhuh &u%k off. Hmm guess that wasn’t a mature reaction. So nil point there then.
The quality of behaving mentally and emotionally like a adult. Hmmm, I guess that’s why I bought a fiber optic Christmas Tree the other day and sit there mesmerised by the twinkly twinkly lights and then went and bought another one for the bedroom because those lights are so goooood and why I stamped on my cordless phone a couple of days ago because the batteries don’t hold charge now and why I’m re-reading Harry potter and why I watched Ice Age last night, and and and….is that too many ‘ands’ for one sentence?
