HAPPY CANADA DAY
Happy Canada Day to all who live in this wonderful country. The Pandemic is still with us as we approach a new normal and we are unsure of what will bring us together and what may tear us apart. However, there are always issues that can separate us, but we still are lucky to live where we live. The issues are important, but we have the ability to sit down and talk about our differences in a civil and respectful way.
The sun this morning rose over Newfoundland and will set over BC tonight. The colours over the Maritimes were especially impressive. The Great Lakes caught the sun at just the right time. A few Manitobans up early enough even wondered if Summer was still holding the fort. The Northern lights danced and dazzled the visitors to the Northwest Territories. In the Yukon, Emerald Lakes’ green water with its mountain range dropback makes us stop in wonder. While Nunavut situated above the tree line, in a region of predominantly treeless tundra with dwarf shrubs, grasses, mosses, and lichens that blaze in summer glory awoke to a beautiful summer day.
Ontario woke up to a new reality and many of them are shaking their heads wondering what happened, but they know common sense will prevail
The happy children in Saskatchewan said to say, “Hi!” The oil workers in Alberta said, “Thanks for the laugh!” The realtor in Quebec asked, “Are you sure about the farmer’s market?” The dancer in PEI whispered, “Don’t tell a soul…” And the sage in BC said, “If you travel be respectful of your hosts, and you have exactly what you need to travel!”
Tell me do you have any recollection of all your other-worldly to-ings and fro-ings, yet? Or are we still pretending we are not in one of the greatest countries in the world?
