I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel

(viewed 870 times)
Often known as the Sailors'Church the chapel's history goes back to 1657 when a wooden chapel was built on the site. The little wooden statuette was above the offertry candles - proper candles I'm pleased to say one of which I lit a thing I tend to do in special churches in memory of our parents

Old Montreal Sept 6th

We arrived in Montreal by train on Wed's. We had dinner with Margaret and John then were taken to the studio where we slept on a double tier blow up mattress, which was very comfortable. On Thurs morning we walked along the side of the Lachine Canal into Old Montreal.

Camping has changed since my day

(viewed 936 times)
All mod cons on the vehicles and someone will have brought just what you need - in this case Mandy borrowed this corn cooker. Everyone shares, some very tasty food was proffered from neighbouring campers. A real community affair. A noticeable quality of Canadian life. Liz sends meals to a nearly blind neighbour down the road.

3 generations

Liz and grandchildren and Liz's daughter Mandy. Was so really good to see them altogether.

Ryan just about managed to raise his sugar levels enough to eat his dinner :)
