Back to work…

Have just spent a day at work, at a meeting for the planning of a project. Yep, back on the environmental stuff – I have 4 months work spread over the next year. That is, in theory it’s 4 months work, but in practice it could be more (although the pay won’t increase!). However, working for an environmental NGO is like that. You do what is necessary to do a good job — because it’s worthwhile and … well … don’t tell my boss, but it’s fun. If you want a 9 to 5 job, forget it. If you want challenge and a chance to see the most exciting rainforest on earth, then there’s nothing to beat it.

And in between, I squeeze in the writing. So I guess there will be more blogs from exotic places and pix of me doing copy edits on top of a rainforest tree with an orang utan or something else equally bizarre. Ok, so that’s a slight exaggeration.

One of the best things about this kind of work is my fieldwork mates. Interesting, long-term friends who share a passion, glimpses of the best places in the world — what more can anyone ask??

Watch this space.

  1. I just read this in an ezine I receive regularly. I immediately thought of you.

    At the end of a sentence I call for tea
    At the end of a paragraph, bread and b.
    At the end of a page chip potatoes and hake
    At the end of a chapter fillet steak
    But ah! when I finish the ultimate line
    When I've brought to fulfillment the grand design
    When I look at the thing and it's mine, all mine
    Then it's Oysters, my love, with Cold White Wine!
