My mind screams "this is what I think" in so many ways. Nicely done, though in my opinion, if you'd like to make it more dramatic, phrases like these are best delivered in greyscale

Thank you! I did try putting it in greyscale, but to me, and as a few people have mentioned, the red really brings out the emphasis in the statement. If the day hadn't been so colorful (bright green leaves, a nice warm sun) I most likely would have done greyscale. Thanks for the input, I appreciate it (:

Despite the growing social movement around the world, there is a certain irony in having written that on a tree.  It works on many levels, which I really like.  Poster material! :)

Beautiful picture!

I've seen the idea of the quote in the game Mirror's Edge as well, in a sense - it went something like:
"We'll survive; it's what we do."
"Survival is overrated. You've got to live a little, too."

^_^ On the tree, it makes me wonder if the message is supposed to come from the 'viewpoint' of the tree, or that of the assumed writer -- is the tree a prop, or a speaker? But then again, I guess for a plant surviving is just about the extent of living, as far as I can picture it... Anyways, I think the fact that it inspires thought is another strong point of this piece! :)

My dad told me that this morning when we were going for a run. I was going ungodly slow, and told him I was just trying to survive... and he screamed, "I don't want to survive, I just want to live!!" And sprinted away. We'd already done 5 miles at that point. I was pretty much dead. So I stopped and went back to the car. :shrug:

Oh he was really good about it, he gave me a high five and we just left. He didn't give me any grief or anything haha. I'm the unathletic daughter, so he's used to it ;) If he had taken my sister with him, they probably would have done ten or eleven miles, but for me it's a struggle to get anything more than three.
