Alan Beevers Grove

Alan's 60th Birthday

27th February 2014
Add to this grove

For many of my 60 years on this planet I thought I was smarter than the average tree. This is clearly not the case!

We need more of these wise and beautiful forest beings.

Instead of gadgets and sweeties this birthday, celebratory trees would be a delight.

Hi Alan,This is Victor Fornari from the 70’s. Wishing you the best.For all of Alan’s friends and relatives, Alan and I were chums way back in the 70’s. Played a mean game of darts at many of the local drinking spots in Inverness in our late teens. The Eagle Bar, the Plough, the back bar in the Corriegarth are some of the pubs we frequented. Special memories.Not at all surpised to see you are still as smart, funny and great company now as then. Reminding you of favorite bands at the time I recall as Soft Machine and Hatfield and the North.Be good.

For Alan, Beavers use trees for their own ends, Beevers loves trees for themselves. We salute Alan Beevers on his 60th (a beaver would never match that) We thank Alan for letting us share his company over the years; he is a unique combination of the inspirational, the passionate, the creative and the humble: and he is such FUN! Alan, we love you and are delighted to add to your flourishing grove. Stephen and Chris

I reflected long and hard about leaving a thought provoking and inspiring message, but the whole time I couldn’t get past that fact that for your 60th Birthday, Hannah and I gave you wood!You are the best uncle a boy could ask for – a role model and a bloody cool dude. With all our love, we wish you a very Happy Birthday.Ross & Hannah x

This comes from ‘Rings on a Tree’ by Norman McCaig (1968):BalancesBecause I see the world poisoned by cant and brutal self-seekingmust I be silent aboutthe useless waterlily,the dunnock’s nest in the hedgeback?Because I am fifty-six years oldmust I love, if I love at all,only ideas – not people but onlythe idea of people?Because there is work to do, to steadya world economicsand a part of the worst slumis the moon rising over it and eyes weeping andmouths laughing….For Alan, who I am proud to have as a mate; who would ALWAYS meet the man; and who – once he saw the moon (and heard the weeping and the laughter) – showed me where to look.Happy Birthday mate. I love you.
