種山的人 (A Portrait of My Father)

My dad had a goal to plant 50,000 trees in the mountain range of Taichung, my hometown. The sloped area suffered from landslide every time we got heavy rain.
For many years, my dad was just climbing up and down the hills with pine tree seedlings, planting them one by one into the skin of the mountain.
Today, after it rains, the mountain top is filled with the scent of fresh pine leaves.
