The giving tree

Jules | 11/22/20

There was a tree who gave the gift that kept on giving.

Then it could't stop. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam volutpat, lorem vitae pulvinar euismod, metus turpis ornare turpis, at sollicitudin libero nulla a metus. Proin fermentum accumsan mi, volutpat commodo diam facilisis in. 

stump: cautionary tale

This is a picture of afterwards. Vivamus vehicula nulla a viverra tincidunt. Cras iaculis, tortor at sagittis sollicitudin, ante tortor venenatis erat, vitae aliquam arcu urna et mi. Curabitur elit felis, vehicula ac ullamcorper sed, ornare ac justo. Ut a accumsan ante. In non orci sed metus ullamcorper imperdiet. Vivamus ut risus efficitur lacus facilisis sagittis non sit amet ligula. Donec tincidunt posuere aliquam. Proin mollis neque sed lorem cursus auctor. Cras gravida elit at commodo pulvinar. Phasellus ultricies elit eget sapien efficitur, a tristique metus feugiat. Morbi aliquam orci ac dui pharetra, et pretium orci tempus. Nunc lectus nisl, efficitur euismod ornare eget, semper quis massa. Duis velit massa, finibus nec velit at, dignissim ullamcorper nunc. Etiam augue ligula, cursus et efficitur non, blandit vitae sem. Vestibulum elementum ligula a nisl hendrerit, eget ultricies dui venenatis.

Mean while, yo keeps on fiddling

I'm hoping that we can use this field soon so Katie and others can start adding some content.

Starting then with the being of a God, (which, as I have said, is as certain to me as the certainty of my own existence, though when I try to put the grounds of that certainty into logical shape I find a difficulty in doing so in mood and figure to my satisfaction,) I look out of myself into the world of men, and there I see a sight which fills me with unspeakable distress.

The world seems simply to give the lie to that great truth, of which my whole being is so full; and the effect upon me is, in consequence, as a matter of necessity, as confusing as if it denied that I am in existence myself. If I looked into a mirror, and did not see my face, I should have the sort of feeling which actually comes upon me, when I look into this living busy world, and see no reflexion of its Creator. This is, to me, one of those great difficulties of this absolute primary truth, to which I referred just now. 

  • Were it not for this voice, speaking so clearly in my conscience and my heart, I should be an atheist, or a pantheist, or a polytheist when I looked into the world.
  • I am speaking for myself only; and I am far from denying the real force of the arguments in proof of a God, drawn from the general facts of human society and the course of history, but these do not warm me or enlighten me; they do not take away the winter of my desolation, or make the buds unfold and the leaves grow within me, and my moral being rejoice.
  • The sight of the world is nothing else than the prophet’s scroll, full of “lamentations, and mourning, and woe.”
