As the school year begins to wind down and spring comes rolling in, I find myself appreciating the finer things in life. I painted this on Monday as I sat on the boardwalk overlooking the swamp, watching the bulrushes sway in the breeze. Even in the midst of all the exam period stress, I found myself being taken away by the feeling of the gentle breeze at my back, the sweet smell of the forest around me, and the warm sun on my face. I forgot all my worries, if only for a little bit, and appreciated the beauty of nature. Especially at times like this, I think that’s something pretty special, and something worth protecting.

I just came across this photo I took in Cootes in first year and wanted to share it. To me it is the little things like this that hold significant value in the world. Just a little reminder to everyone to be a constant observer of what is around them, not taking anything for granted!
