Porte Musings:

One of my favorite memories of elementary school was in Grade 7 when our Principal, Mrs. Helen Coulter read Return to Treasure Island to the grade 8’s in our split class. The group of Grade 8’s were from poor local families and had below their grade level reading English skills. Her gift to them was to read a book of adventure and growing up to them. Hoping to instill in them a sense of love of reading. We should follow her example on World Kindness Day. Going above what is required with love.

The third annual dance in High School was the Sadie Hawkins Dance in remembrance of Sadie Hawkins Day. It was the girls’ turn to ask boys to the dance. I never had the nerve to ask someone to go out with me at that age. I soon learned that you had to put yourself out there if you wanted anything you had to ask.

Samples of wine while touring sounds good to me. So celebrate Wine Tour Day, even if it’s just in sampling the bottles in your own fridge. 😉

Don’t expect things to happen fast.
Be empathetic with the people
you are photographing.
Don’t be concerned about money.

  • Friday the 13th is usually a big day in Port Dover Ontario as thousands of Motorcyclists converge on the small town. This year due to COVID-19 the locals in Port Dover are asking the motorcyclists to stay home. Permits aren’t being issued to venders and merchants are closing their doors. I wonder if the participants will still show up. After all this event wasn’t initiated by the local residents but instead by Hell’s Angels, who didn’t ask permission in the first place.
