There is no reason, really, aside from a terrible neighbour. We will take it day by day.
On Saturday I travelled by bus to meet up with two women I grew up with. It was a good visit, with a lot of giggling and improper conversations. Just like how we talked as teenagers. Silly, serious, thoughtful, silly again.
It was not a soul-sucking visit. It was good.
The visit reminded me of balance and freedom. A visit way East to Newfoundland is a possibility for August. Visiting Gros Morne National Park...
Also more plans for foraging. I think I will plan monthly foraging with Puck's Plenty to watch how wild edibles change over the growing season.
And a new season beginning at the community garden this spring. Fences to be repaired, quack-grass to be battled with, new plant babies to nurture and nourish.
