Spent most of the day catching up on some Canadian art news and reading about this intriguing unsolved mystery of Tom Thompson. In the process I was happy to discover a writer who writes about Canada. I am glad they found out it was his skull. No mention of the families reaction though to the finding.  And there was some question about it being a bullet hole. It sure looks like it to me, but I am not a forensic scientist. What was the other option…the theory that he injured himself with his rowing ore. You would think they could now do a proper investigation to find out if the hole is a gun shot wound or not.  Here’s a photo of him with a paddle. 

For some reason I think the paddle would have made more of a mess. Where are CSI when you need them!!!

Yes, We Wood!

“Yes, We Wood!” is a term created to express our method, or modus operandi, of keeping forests green.  It means that we plant trees, or “wood” whenever a tree is unnaturally displaced.   For example: when a tree is removed, or chopped down for a clearing, or needs to be removed due to being too close to a house or driveway etc…we commit to plant a tree in its stead; maybe even two to ensure growth, in another location close to it.

It may not seem like a large thing to do, but it is do-able within our scope, and leaves the ratio of green directly around us the same as we found it.
