The Appreciation Experiment

As I run through the deserted trails around my home, I can't help but appreciate the earthy smell around me. I take deeper breaths and hold the scent in for just a moment. A part of me feels like it's the last time I will smell this springtime, rotting earth fragrance. The last time the... Continue Reading →

Why I Quit My Dream Job

As I place my Stetson hat back on my cubby hook for the very last time, I ponder two things: How did I get to this point; when did this become an imaginable option? If the paid stewards of our protected areas feel at a loss, what is left to do? Going into my 5th... Continue Reading →

A Stay Along the Shoreline

My partner and I recently visited Tofino for our annual, stormy January visit. Vancouver Island is a magical place to disconnect from busy lifestyles.
