Tree # 11: Esmerelda
I’ve got big dreams. BIG dreams. Sheep. A barn with sheep. A bell and a stick. A garden, lots of food growing everywhere. I’m looking for a change, and folks to do it with. I guess I’ve tried some, but it just hasn’t worked out yet. Maybe I really just need to be in charge of some thing of my own. Maybe it is about thinking I’m smarter than people. Maybe that’s what it is. Smart means working through ideas. Smart means admitting when you don’t know things. Smart means figuring it out after a little while, and remembering. But not everyone likes smarts. I keep a silent record of the glazed over eyes, the apathy faced to the excitement of my wild tangents and personally relevant information. There’s just so much to think about! This is really a great world we live in.
What I know I can thrive on:
Children. Dirt. Silence. Sunlight. Organic matter. Weird people. Difference. My own imagination.
What I want more of:
Invitations. Couth. Patience. Sheep.
