> hi portage,
> I'm sorry about the anxiety & the tree! My advice would be to approach the tree and go right up close to it so you can beat the irrational fear. Touch the bark, hug it (if you dare!), sit underneath it. This all assumes it's in a safe place to approach - no traffic or anything. Maybe ask your sister to go with you, since she seems to be supportive.

thanks jenstar!
oh boy, your right, trees in general are wonderful. i even named my puppy, Willow, after a tree.
i bet i could touch this particular tree, despite its aura of evilness. and yeah, it might help.
but an idea i've been throwing around in my head that i like much better: i would pay someone a great deal of money to go saw it down, and burn the remains.

again, let me emphasize, i'm no tree-hater. i've always been a proponate of national forests and recycling paper-products, and i greatly admire Smokey the Bear and Johnny Apple Seed, and have always begrudged George Washington for cutting down that beautiful English cherry tree.
AND, and, my all-time favore book is "The Giving Tree", i'm not kidding. i still have the whole thing memorized...
"...once there was a tree, who loved a little boy." makes me smile thinking about it.

oh well. i'm in a goofy mood right now, and actually feel much better than i did a half hour ago.

thanks for your words.
