Speaking for Trees. Mental Health Break.

I don't know how many readers are familiar with American singer/song writer Cat Power, aka Charlyn "Chan" Marshal. Cat Power is best known for her minimalist style and spare guitar. She is one of our eclectic favorites and this video, which we think fits a new category we're calling "environmental music," (an additional category for the Grammy's!) is another reason why.

In a world full of extreme performances, this song for the trees makes this Sunday morning just right. Hear the cicadas humming? All natural. Car sounds, too.

We did wonder if Cat Power really believed that she was speaking FOR the trees, (Can anyone? Would they want that?) or whether she is really speaking TO the trees. You be the judge.
