“There is no word for art.
We say it is to transfer something from the real to the unreal.
I am an owl, and I am a happy owl.
I like to make people happy and everything happy.
I am the light of happiness and I am a dancing owl.”
~ Ashevak Kenojuak (October 3, 1973 – January 8, 2013)

Labour Day

The first Monday in September.

Yes, Canadians leave the “U” in “Labour”.

A Federal Holiday in Canada celebrating the Legalization of Unions and the labour movement.

Marking the end of the summer holidays for most, with school starting on the Tuesday.

The days have become noticeably shorter with the darkness of night creeping in earlier each day.  Canadian Geese are practicing for their flight south. The Monarch butterflies are abundant as they prepare in numbers for their annual trip to Mexico. Although there are almost 3 more weeks of summer left, autumn breezes are felt and windows are closed against the cooler nights.

Today Canada celebrates confederation, the beginning of our Country, with a holiday.

School is done for the year, students celebrate the beginning of summer holidays.
Friends and family will spend an extra day together with Barbeque’s, beer and cake.
Many will spend time at a local beach or one of the many community centres.
The Maple Leaf will be proudly flown everywhere.
Tonight fireworks will light the skies across the country .

Happy Canada Day!
