You Don't Know What You've Got 'Till It's Gone

They took all the trees

Put 'em in a tree museum

And they charged the people

A dollar and a half just to see 'em Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell


For Project Soul Pancake: Pint Sized Protest


Step 1: Find a couple of little people.

Step 2: Emblazon a tiny piece of paper with something you stand for.

Step 3: Stage your protest in a public sapce.

Step 4: Walk away and let the world hear your battle cry...or should we say whisper?


As soon as I saw the project for this week I immediately thought of The Lorax by Dr.Seuss. It seemed like the perfect match, especially considering just where this photo was taken. All I needed was a few minutes, some polymer clay and there was my lorax.


Most of my "forest" photos are taken in my town's community forest, a beautiful expanse of trees and lakes and endless nature. I'm on the board of directors for the governing society and every year we have to send a plea to the city and the provincial government to leave it just as it is. Not build roads right through it, not put houses in it...just leave it for everyone as a sanctuary. Someone's gotta speak for the trees, it might as well be me!
