I often long to be in Algonquin, my favourite place; it’s roughly a four-hour drive from here, but I haven’t been for over a year.
Instead, I find ways to nourish myself, as we all must: I watch the new snow fall. I watch the squirrels. I go out with my wife and we find deer in the woods. I talk to trees and bless the wind. For now, it is enough.
