Okay, so I may not really be a tree hugger. But I totally get the concept of hugging a tree. I mean literally hugging a tree.
As a very touchy, feely, hands on girl, even more so when alcohol is involved. I have become very isolated because of chemotherapy.
I am not to hug people, shake hands, go to movie theaters, go dancing in sweaty clubs or any crowded places.
I am isolated.
I am lonely.
I feel neglected.
I feel sad.
I feel rude when I do not hug as a greeting.
I need human contact.
I need socialization.
I need people.
I need friends.
I find that I text more often now just hoping to have some type of conversation, with anyone.
I find that tree very appealing. It needs a hug. If only it could hug back.
Sad part is I would hug a tree then have to sterilize myself from whatever may be growing or living on the tree ‘just in case’
If the tree could hug back I may just make it through this.
Maybe I just need a pet.
