Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Public Health Alert


A childhood that does not include the deep, cheek-to-bark, tailbone-to-root, limb-to-limb friendship of at least one tree is a malnourished childhood, lacking in nutrients essential to the prevention of rickets of the soul.

I've been silently reading this blog for quite some time, but I feel like I need to finally make my presence known and thank you. Every entry seems to have the perfect blend of wit, charm, and honesty, and it has been a pleasure reading a bit of your life. Thank you.

Oh how I wish we had trees like that at our house. However we are blessed with lots of pines (which do not good climbing make) and 7 fruit trees. Maybe one of them will befriend my sons.

I look froward to my kids being old enough to climb trees.

I have been reading your blog since I found out about it in April this year! I read it often and am not surprised at all that you have become such a wonderful writer.

The insight you have into motherhood, family, children and life are inspiring and I enjoy your writings very much.

I hope you will be making the big journey to our reunion next year! Bring your family, they are beautiful!

Love this post. How right you are and how sad it is to think of all the malnourished kids out there. I'd like to invite them all to Vermont for a tree-climbing party.
