My mother and I love to go hiking and fishing.
- Since my brother never liked outdoor recreation, I would use this as a mom and daughter thing.
We would take hikes into the woods adjacent to our house. We formed a special bond whenever we were sitting together in nature, listening to the majestic sounds of the forest. Mom taught me how to watch for bears and what to do if I ever encountered a single while alone or with others in the wilderness. Because of the skills my father taught me, I feel confident that I could survive indefinitely outside of society if I ever needed to get away from the insanity. However, the winters in Manitoba are downright brutal, so I eventually moved to Toronto to get close to the banks of Lake Ontario. Despite the lake-effect snow, the Toronto space is much warmer than my family’s old beach house in Winnipeg. Despite living in Toronto, I love driving north to sites like Lake Simcoe to go camping and fishing. This past weekend I stopped at a easily great weed dispensary in Newtonbrook on Drewry Ave. I decided to purchase a package of pre-rolled joints so I could smoke them along the banks of Lake Simcoe. I adore being in Toronto and being around the people, however sometimes I need to get out to the woods to know again like I did when I was still young in Manitoba. Occasionally I will take my cannabis vaporizer pen with me out to Lake Ontario and take a ferry out to the Toronto Islands. If I want to see the city from 1000s of feet up, I can visit the CN Tower as well. Living in Toronto is honestly more exciting than my former life in Winnipeg.
