Last summer I was looking into tree planting out in BC. I got some information and had some contacts, things were lining up. Later in the summer I was lying on the beach frustrated beyond belief by two black flies that were incessantly biting me as soon as I turned away. (Anyone who has been to the East Coast of Canada in July or August knows the kind.) and I'm not one of those people whom upon being bit gets a little mark and an itch. My bug bites swell up to be about the size of a loonie. I literally look like I have been involved in some shifty product testing by the companies that send you spam for "cheap drugs". Anyways, it was that moment that I realized how bad of an idea it was to go tree planting, and that I would likely parish.
Every once and a while if my mind wanders to the, "but maybe it wouldn't be so bad to go planting" area, little subtle reminders, like the one I received yesterday push me right back on track.
With that said, Spring is coming, I am excited!
