Dear Friends, I can't resist sharing this with you (simply because of the odds of it happening...)

My Family and I moved to Canada back in 1982...I barely spoke French, and no English. Yet, like other kids, my brothers and I were told to go to school. Unlike most of our classmates, we were fresh off the plane with sandwiches that smelled more like onions than the peanut butter and jelly ones that everyone had in their colourful lunch boxes. Despite our differences, we were welcomed and befriended some incredible people! Among them, one of the first friends I ever met on this side of the pond - the perfectly braided and lovely, Nicole Ayotte. Fast forward about 20 years...life took its course, Nicole completed a masters in environmental studies, got married, and moved to Victoria where her career flourished. Though I often think of my dear friend, I haven't seen her in years.

Now fast forward to my journey to Ecuador...

After several long days of travel, we finally reach our final destination in the Amazon jungle...and for the first time in days, I prepare for a full night's sleep. As I lay down to rest, I pull out a book that was given to me by one of my guides: titled "Defending Our Rainforest" published by Action Amazonia in 1999. Fighting the urge to close my eyes (as I've always done), I scan several chapters and flip to a page with a picture..in it my beloved friend, Nicole (bottom right corner). I mention this because: first, in my post Chicha experience and tired state of of mind, I thought I was hallucinating, or at least imagining things, and second because - "What are the odds!?!"...

I snapped this picture to always remember this moment...a picture that somewhat set the pace for my appreciation of the environment that surrounded me in the rainforest. You see, as long I've known Nicole, she had a profound fascination and love for nature, especially forests. If I remember correctly, her thesis focused on the aging process of trees. That said, she contributed to the book I read that night...and it couldn't have felt more perfect! Nicole, I miss and love you dearly, I am so proud of your achievements, and again, think of you often - even when least expected!
