My beloved almond tree

When I had enough vision to do it, I took a picture of my beloved almond tree and what a picture it was! I had leaned through the window of
my mom's living room and with the utmost of care and purpose I took this photo in 2003 with my old fashioned camera. Then I developed the photo at a photo store and carefully placed it in my photo album.

This photo is still in my photo album but I can no longer see it. However, it does not prevent me from remembering it in the finest of detail. My beloved almond tree was in full bloom at that time. So green and so lush. Her branches loaded with such beautiful leaves and there were so many branches. Too many for me to count.

My beloved almond tree was tall and stately. Huge and spread right out for everyone to admire her beauty. I am told that she is still a very beautiful tree to behold, and why not? She is the crowning beauty of mom's yard. She plays host to so many beautiful singing birds and she is the place where so many go to sit under the shade of her branches on a warm day.

My beloved almond tree is the pride and joy of so many! She is ageless; we estimate that she is well over 50 years old but we are not quite sure exactly how old she is. She sheds her leaves twice yearly and it does not take very long for her to regain new lush leaves. She is also loaded with fat juicy almonds that fall heavily to the ground when they are ripe.

Ah, yes! That's my beautiful almond tree!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
