I WAS ALMOST done with writing this week’s column by Thursday last week. It was about the missing campfire ban; it was long overdue and its absence worrying.
Many thousands of evacuees later, homes burned, and multiple fires eating their way through the province, growing with every hour and gust of wind, the skies are hazy and the immediate future worrisome. In the midst of it all that and with the fear of more coming, it is almost too easy to get discouraged.
But since despair does not do much to help, making more room for better feelings might just be the way to go.
