comprehensive field guide
being unemployed has suddenly turned me into a motivated young citizen. or, um, legal alien. . . not a citizen. . . anyways. i am *way* motivated. i even made a cv yesterday. it doesn't suck too much. i think.
also excitedly researching trips on vancouver island, for this weekend and next august. so many beautiful things to see! i'm reading a fat book called the audubon society nature guides: western forests, which has trees, plants, animals and birds all in one book, with lots of nice pictures and a good introduction to northwest coastal forests with an emphasis on ecosystems and interdependency. i got it second hand for $8 and it is keeping me well entertained. the kind of squirrel i see around a lot is douglas' squirrel, and the tree i was sitting under at ubc the other day was a lodgepole pine.
now i am at a cafe off main st. the moutains are very beautiful today. miriam and i visited the twins yesterday. we spent most of the time playing princesses. at one point miriam had a little tutu around each leg. it was most fetching.
