I found this cool questionaire while I was kicking around the internet the other day.  It's about Bioregional Animism.  I thought it was an interesting was to assess how well you know the environment you're working in, since TW tends to pull directly from the land you're on.  I copied the questions here, but here's a link to the original post.

  20. Name five species of trees in your area that you can identify.

Love! Great survey to see how in touch you are with your surroundings, and at the very least to awaken awareness.

Its a nice checklist to have a think about the area you are in and how you connect to it.

I think I will sit and draft out the answers when I am next free...

 

Also minor housekeeping note, I made the list font brighter and easy to read.
