The Tree Is Gone!!! Replaced by concrete.

The Tree is gone!!! Replaced by concrete!!! Joel Tauber is beyond devastated.

The Tree is gone!!! Replaced by concrete. And, I’m beyond devastated.

At the same time, I’m trying to focus on all of the Tree Babies that are thriving. So, I went to visit the USC Tree Baby to try to cheer up.

Many thanks to all the Tree Baby parents!

Thankfully, many Tree Babies, including the USC Tree Baby, are thriving.

Today, I returned to the site where the Tree once lived, and I mourned It’s passing.

I will always love The Tree, and I will always miss The Tree.

Art. Environment. Action. Sick-Amour movie screening and USC Tree Baby Celebration

I’m heading to LA next week to visit The Tree in the middle of Rose Bowl parking lot K and to celebrate one of its 200 Tree Babies that is growing so beautifully and tall at USC.

The Tree and its Tree Babies began teaching me about love, devotion, and activism quite a long time ago, and they continue to do so today.

They also continue to teach me about family, community, and collectivism. I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has offered hugs, water, and other forms of nourishment to the Tree and its Tree Babies.

We are gathering on April 27 in LA for a discussion about what we can do for our environment and for each other, both individually and collectively. We will screen my film Sick-Amour, celebrate the USC Tree Baby, and offer it both water and affection.

It would be wonderful if you could join us.
