My favourite day in High Park, the burn

Once a year, the oak savannah prairie in High Park has a controlled burn. Traditionally, this was done either by lightning or on purpose by First Nations people. Now it is continued to maintain the extremely rare ecosystem which is in High Park, Toronto. It is pretty great.

I am increasingly interested in how people and plants interact in the city. I am looking for clues, for an understanding, for a translation.

I do not support the American SOPA legislation. American film and music corporations are also creating legislation in Canada which is oppressive--Bill C-10. It would make it illegal for me to take a movie I buy and put it onto my hard drive. I am going to have an offline day. Might get some things around the house fixed.

After three years on the run, I surrendered and got an accountant. He was really great. I may not go to jail now.

christmas is actually pretty chaotic around here. it's over now. I find myself doing strange things. trying to make the universe behave, be ordered. I took all the interesting Christmas present boxes and covered them in paper I like. I am slowly cleaning out the drawers in my kitchen and painting them. I know this is absurd. There is no snow this winter, things are flowering when they shouldn't. Things fall apart...
