The world’s a forest, in which all lose their way;
though by a different path each goes astray.

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

April 28th is set aside to remember Workers’ Memorial Day, or also known as Mourning Day. A day to remember all the workers who have lost their lives at work. Our local tragedy, in London ON occurred when a building under construction collapsed leaving 2 dead and others injured. Orange safety vests are still hung outside homes to honour those that died. A recent Facebook meme showed one of the overhead highway signs that said: “See Bob. Bob wears orange. We need Bob. Don’t hit Bob.”

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that today is also National Superhero Day. Superheroes come in all shapes and forms. From the comic book superheroes to the everyday superheroes we salute you.

And of course we all live for the moment that the Superhero kisses the supporting role. So remember to celebrate National Kiss Your Mate Day. Yes one of those deep soul reaching kisses where you sweep each other in an embrace and the right foot lifts up. ❤

Great Poetry Reading Day


Two male mallard ducks waddling ahead on the path through the pines looking for a puddle big enough to swim away in.

Finally a nice sunny spring day.  I was able to do some shopping, buy some bird seed at a local farmer’s, wash the car and weed the front flower bed.  I went for a walk to deliver some of my bird seed to my grandson’s new home.  They have a beautiful Magnolia tree that is getting ready to bloom and they inherited a bird feeder from the previous tenant.  Cardinals and Blue Jays have been swooping around the feeder looking for food.

The Canadian Province of British Columbia recorded it’s second day in a row with no deaths from COVID-19.  While the Province of Ontario has developed a plan for how it will start to remove restrictions when we reach a time when it is safe to do so.  Everyone is getting anxious about being able to get back to normal, what ever normal will be after the pandemic.  Our Prime Minister is warning that we don’t want to remove the restrictions too soon and end up with a second wave that could be more deadly than the first.
