It’s rare so far to come across big forests or big trees in Newfoundland. The rugged coastline terrain and the long-standing lumber industry don’t make for any great giants on the island. As much as I love the ocean and rocky hills, there’s a part of me that misses the forests of home, the way trees crowd out the sky and sway in the breeze. Who knows, maybe that would be different later in the springtime when the buds had started to open, but as it is right now I’ve got tree rings in my heart and that small part is glad we’re headed west.
