Requiem for Trees

Two of our trees at DUUF are gone. They contracted a disease (if I heard which disease, I don’t remember) and died last year. This past week they were removed.

I’ll miss them. When CUUPS held outdoor circles, we frequently placed our main altar between them, or in front of them. I’m thankful we have a building for our circles, particularly in bad weather. And I enjoy working in open spaces. But there is nothing quite like worshipping beneath trees. Yes, I’m a Druid!

North Texas is not particularly tree-friendly, but some species do well here. It’s been suggested we plant a live oak in between the stumps of these two trees. That may be something CUUPS would like to do.

All living things eventually return to the Great Mother, even trees. Farewell, my friends!
