I like trees. No not THOSE "trees" ya pothead...but trees in general...although I think those trees should be grown as well...probably reduce the fires since the people who would buy them would never let them dry out ha ha ha.OK, seriously...
I like the way they grow, and change, and as we walk by them all the time, perhaps the ones we are familiar with... we grow to love. We notice if a branch is missing, we look forward to the new leaves in spring and witness the very leaves falling in their beauty as if we are watching our loved ones leave for a holiday..yet we always have in the back of our mind Spring. They will be back...albeit through their injuries of lost branches , leaves and dog urine,,,they WILL be back.
Unconsciously we notice it whether you like it or not. When those trees will be reborn and change, as we change, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse...I know I've certainly needed some pruning over the years, and even perhaps been pissed on, but who am I to judge a tree. I am nonjudgmental, towards people...and trees. However for better or for worse , that tree is our friend, especially for dogs.
I drive all different people from all walks of life, and I have yet to hear someone in my Taxi tell me..."That Christmas tree looks like shit !!" ...I'm with Charlie Brown on this one, the tree is what we make of it, such is our life...and as you read further the last quote from an author with the same first name as Mr.Brown albeit Mr.Dickens was never quite creative enough to draw a dog called Snoopy...His quote resonates as loudly today as it ever did...Enjoy all.
"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all thirty feet tall."

Wall St Tree
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. ~Dr. Seuss
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.
and so in closing , I am not a tree...a Taxi hack can't stand to be grounded or we are losing money...the leaves of our profits if you may, but maybe mine and your good deeds can create some prophets of good will instead..MONEY ??!?!?!?! Its Christmas !!!! Who cares ?!?! Indeed , let us care more about others who really need it, ourselves and family and that of our fellow man who recognizes good will and not greed. I know I will try to....NO... I WILL DO...and to to sum it up..."It ain't fuckin' easy !!!" ....but then again nothing in life ever worthwhile is. So I recommend it, and will keep bringing you through the chaos of my life these stable trees and chaotic scenes of the city that are also the stability of a Christmas present that we can all unwrap....its only December 2nd peeps....and The King has a LOT more.
I'm not Charles Dickens...and as I listen to the heartbeat of the rain echo through the hollow of my Taxi , maybe I have been an Ebenezer Scrooge now and again....with my regrets.....but wholeheartedly I remain ...The King Of New York Hacks.... Peace out Elfers !
