When I went to kindergarten, 

I remember someone saying

that kindergarten teachers usually cry at the end of every day in September.

   I seem to forget that until another September rolls around.

ER is an American medical drama that ran from 1994-2009.

I was 26 when I started watching it.

It is streaming on Amazon Prime now.

I am 53.

And watching the show is a completely different experience.

When many of the patients are brought in, I have these thoughts - 

- I know someone who has been through it.

- I wonder if I will have it (or if I already have it).

Now studying at Dal's School of Architecture,

Eliza's reply when I asked if she loved her classes was -

"Yeah. It doesn't feel like I'm in school because I actually like what I'm doing."

I remember that feeling.

During my undergrad years, I wasn't sure what I was doing and why.

When I started my master's degree in education, every class felt like coming home.

Sharing Our Stories | Tree Planting

At the end of the tree planting season, Eliza made a video. 

There were



   bug bites

   8pm bedtimes

   early mornings

   bandaged feet

   Christmas toe

   hot days

   eating on the move 

   wet boots

But there were

   beautiful sunrises

   great views of their province

   fresh air

   lots of critters

   wonderful people

   goals surpassed


   thousands and thousands of trees planted

Annie and Eliza came home after long, hard days with a smile. 

Every day.
