Mood: Pondering blue trees.
Soundtrack: The Decemberists "What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World" and "The Crane Wife"

There are around 20 or so trees in Wash Park that have these blue ribbons around them. Apparently an artist will be painting these trees blue to point out the devastation of deforestation. I guess if you notice a blue tree you think about trees that get taken out? I don't fully get the point, other than to say that losing trees is bad. I am quite curious to see what Wash Park will feel like when it has a bunch of blue trees. Part of the reason that it is such a wonderful place to visit is the abundance of natural beauty...I'm not sure that weird looking trees will enhance that, but I'll wait until I see it for myself. The good news is that even if it is terrible, the paint will only last a few months before wearing off and turning back into a normal looking tree.
