*Merry Christmas. In Ontario we’re all spending this season in groups of 5 or less with our loved ones for tomorrow the lock-down begins for at least 28 days to try to curb the ever increasing COVID-19 numbers.
Don’t forget it’s also the Canadian Prime Minister’s Birthday. Happy 49th Birthday Justin Trudeau. 🎂
*So much to do and so little time. Saturday is my newest Grandson’s 3rd birthday. We’re honoured to be in the circle of 10 so I bought his present yesterday. I need to practice my flute for at least 15 minutes every day as I prepare to perform for my youngest son’s wedding on December 12th. I’ll be taking pictures for him as the groom, father of the groom and groomsmen get their haircuts the day before the wedding. The groom’s party will be held that night in our heated garage where they can smoke cigars. The groom and my grandson will be staying over night at our house. Then the next day I will be taking pictures of the groom and his party getting dressed. Then 2 weeks after the wedding is Christmas Eve.
*Growing up Sundays were family adventure days. We would all load up into the car and either go to visit someone or go for a picnic. During the Pandemic we won’t be going to visit anyone, but the idea of going for a drive still means adventure.
Not really, but if I take a wrong road or path and find something new I may not take the shortest route. I may stop to take some pictures, watch some birds, try a new restaurant, pause to breathe in my surroundings, talk to a stranger, buy a new trinket.
Don’t follow me, but travel with me to the beach, the mountains, the forest, the valley to share adventures on our way.
The issue of world environment has a special kind of urgency…
The issue is one of rich peoples and poor peoples,
of the growing gap between the two,
and of the rich fouling their own nests.
~ Gilbert White (English – Naturalist / July 18, 1720 – June 26, 1793)
World Listening Day
Nelson Mandela International Day
My favorite lunch time view, sitting in a kayak and watching turtles pop up for air around me, listening to frogs croak, maybe even catch young muskrat playing along the water’s edge. Wondering what’s on the other side of the bridge, where I have never gone.
The Old Ausable Channel has some of the purest spring fed water in the world.
