"Redemption:(theme-room-Connect the Dragon)Picture of me Digging up the roots of my giant redwood tree,because it has root-rot":(I am trying to redeem my poor tree,cause I found this root-rot,with a white line around the base,and rotten wood;so,I'm digging it all away,as evening approaches;I have to call the Lane County Extension-Gardeners,or even an "arborist"(tree specialists)cause I do NOT WANT TO LOSE MY GIANT REDWOOD TREE.AUGGGH. I suspect already,that it has a fungus from the cat-shit I found around it's base.I have to get info and advice,but I bet the ferral cats on my place(which I am getting rid of)put cat-shit on the base of the tree,and infected it. Shit. Redemption is the theme, too,as I am trying to redeem the tree,cause I let the damn cats live here,and do this. That makes it my fault. Ha. Try to do a good deed, keep someone's cats on your place for them,and this happens. A lesson to all those who allow ferral(wild)cats to roam around your neighborhood: GET rid of them. I had a lot of trouble with the sketch,I am not longer the best of painters,still have tendonitus,can't lots of hours on work anymore.

Also, I just noticed, I have a tendency to use too much force on keyboards,a too heavy touch,maybe I better watch that and lighten up on all my computer touch;maybe I am too heavy handed,and that is causing me trouble overall,with tendonitus and interaction with mouses,drawing, ect. Me,the heavy hand.That heavy touch could cause trauma, I guess.Never noticed it before. oww.So,I've been pounding the keys and the mouses too much??How light is this keyboard?Maybe better get a much lighter touch board??Duh?Is it getting old??Any experts know,do you get a very light touch keyboard, to help this?Gettin too old?Do they get too less light, with age?Need to be cleaned??Any experts on how to lighten up your hardware touch,so you reduce your impact,and not get this trauma?Seems it used to be a much lighter touch,not so now. Now,I just seem to pound,which is not good.Duh. Call me stupid with hardware.Better talk to my computer repairman,huh?He could get me lightening-up-touch equipment?Or adjust or clean it??Yeah,let's hear from you tech-touch experts, out there, on how to reduce force on the mouse and keyboard??(I use a touch pad now.) anyhow,wish this drawing was better , my trees deserve that respect; I'm going to get it well,though, or die with it.As for the other(?)subject of love,I love my trees. Very much. Oregonian. (my state.)That connects the Dragon; there is other kinds of love besides human to human;love of nature, too. Thanks! :)

Stare at the center of the tree in the pic and eventually the square around it becomes a hole into the dimension the tree lives in, you'll know when you are there as you are no longer bound by the 2d medium - which of course is very cool.

Had major probs with C.T.S myself, resolved it by using the mouse with the hand slightly lifted to one side - odd at first but it eventually becomes second nature, it stops the pressure on the Carpel Tunnel which carries all those nerves which don't like being squidged, as for a lighter keyboard touch try resting the fleshy part of the hand on something like a necklace case when you type - I use one for paint brushes and it is a godsend for long keyboard sessions and keeps the hand above the k/b which lightens the touch ;)

Have you thought about urinating around the tree? It marks the area and may (or may not) help keep animals away. It's an old folk advice for people lost or camping in wilderness. Wild animals may keep away. Also... There is a revention from (not quire related) inscet burrowing... It's suppose to be a mixture of Jipsom (SP?), sheet rock/dry wall sheet material and some stuff... Apply this slury around the base of the tree. It keeps inscet away. Maybe cats and fungus, too? Zinc (the metal) is an anti mold/anti fungus treatment. Newspaper ink contains zinc. Redemption (tree, too?) is the theme? Interesting.... must grok upon this while avi is being converted to quicktime.
