I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.
"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I started the day with last nights careless mistake. I took the blade off the skillsaw to ungarble a partially cut cord. I took it over to my mechanically inclined neighbour whose wife lent me his saw until he came back home and could fix mine. It rained off and on and I worked in it and got soaked. Later I went for a walk with my friend who earlier in the week lost her husband. I returned back to work and by the end of the day felt I'd fought and won a war.
