ive only had one experience with tree communication, and it was quite awsome. i was actually put in my place by the forrest once. this is really
weird -because I never thought I would share this, but basically I was mocking the forrest one day.
My friend and I were getting superinebriated out in the forrest, in this little enbankment. It was really a nice setting, and we were just goofing,
yknow the typical stuff.
It was autumn, and the leaves were falling at a serious rate. Almost like thick snow. Not just one leaf here, and another there - but tonns and
tonns of leaves, just slowly floating - really creating this fun atmosphere to just sit and be inebriated in. It wasnt particularly windy, and this
was up on the side of a hill covered in trees. Just a nice happy breeze, and all these leaves. They were falling quite nicely.
So in my immature inebriated state, I thought I would make a joke;
I stood up and started talking to all the leaves falling, literally talking. I thought I would make a funny for my friend to laugh at, yknow - the
inebriate talking to inanimate objects (its funny right?) -yeah, so I stand up and start calling out all these individual leaves. I would point to
one and say,
"yep you too - c'mon down, its time to die"
"oh! that leaf over there... c'mon down"
"hey you. yeah, you - you get to die today too, c'mon down"
so basically, I was mocking these leaves telling them it was autumn, and that they could one by one start dropping to the forrest floor. We sat up
there for a good minute before I decided to start my mockery, all the while these leaves just fluttered down. Not 30 seconds after I started mocking
them, they stopped falling. Really, it was quite weird. Even in my laughter, I couldnt help but think maybe they were responding to me - as if to
"hey! we will come down when we damn well please! - stop mocking us!"
My joke wasnt funny anymore because there werent any leaves falling. I had to double take and was a bit confused. I passed it off as 'the breeze
letting up' - and in a joking manner, I once more addressed the trees trying to bring a little closure to my joke. I said,
"OK OK, nevermind - come down at your will."
No more then 5 seconds later, the leaves started pouring down again. It was really quite the experience. I walked away from it with a bit more
respect for the forrest. My friend passed it off as coincedence and being inebriated. I still think the trees heard me, and responded.
