Hi Rob,

The Earth "nurses" life in the same way a mother "nurses" her children - feeds us and nourishes us; without "mother" earth we'd have to feed on each other...erm oh that's right, we all do ;-) But you see what I mean.

As for hugging that tree on Hampstead Heath - they may have special memories of that place? There is a tree on Chipperfield Common that my children have climbed since they were able. It's a 400 year old sweet chestnut, and each harvest has been anxiously anticipated by everyone who knows it. Last winter, after the long drought (possibly an effect of global warming?) the chestnuts fell, but inside the shell there was no nut. Over the winter, branches have been falling, and the tree has had ropes put around it at some distance to protect people from falliing branches. It can take many years for a tree to die.
You think those ropes kept me and many other walkers away from that tree? Not on your life! When I read the notice, I was compelled to go and touch that old dying tree, and shed a few tears for it- especially if after all the pleasure it has brought to so many of us for hundreds of years has been ended by man-made global warming. Even if it was just old age, I still had to go and touch it to say goodbye. Maybe thosee women were there for different/similar reasons... or were just "tree huggers" :-)
