I'm lucky. There's a bit of forest just beyond my back yard. I live literally on the edge of town. I was born, raised and lived most of my life in big cities, 'concrete jungles;' then, about 1996, I decided to get the heck out. I had come to the conclusion that any town with over 2000 people was subject to insanity. It was at the same time I was transitioning to veganism. I love trees and have planted 3 of them in my yard.
