Another mundane day at work. You'd think working in a remote camp there would be boundless wildlife everywhere, right? Wrong. Camp is full of the hustle and bustle of workers hurrying about getting ready for work. A large compressor station drones in the background. Vehicles roar up and down the road. These factors make the odd deer on the road, or the occasional bear wandering near the fence a rarity. One day blends in to another. Complacency sets in. Routine and time deadlines consume all thought and physical energy.
A Memorable Moment
The steady noise of the wood splitter filled the otherwise quiet Autumn morning. Jade stopped for a moment brushing back her long, blond hair while surveying her work. A growing pile of split logs lay ready to be hauled to the shed and stacked for winter. Sometimes being single wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. For a moment, Jade contemplated what it would be like to have someone special in her life. Someone that didn't mind helping and would enjoy doing things with her.
