  1. With the web and internet, it’s hard to find time to keep up with all that’s going on in the world. Thanks for your Canadian links. I think I am most attracted to the one about the consciousness of trees, but then, that says a lot about me, doesn’t it? Forget the day-to-day stuff. Give me info about the world’s (and trees’) SOULS. 🙂
