-I flew to Vancouver six years ago, and only saw it briefly. It was good. This time around I have settled in for two and a half weeks. I think it is safe to say that I have become enamoured with the place. It will be hard to leave.
-Climbing mountains, hiking trails, and going running, are not a part of my regular Ontario routine. I am wishing that could change.
-The summertime is the perfect time for enjoying buskers.
-I finally, after years of false starts, have the beginnings of a novel going. And I am confident that though it will be a labour of love over the next few years, I will have something of substance to share with friends, family, and the like.
-INCEPTION!!!! I counted six levels.
-Extroverts need Introverts, and Introverts need Extroverts.
-Though I currently don't have a home to return to in Toronto yet, this does not bother me. I actually have a lot of peace about it, and full faith in God and my community.
-If you visit Vancouver, go to Gene (which is a small coffee shop) at Main & Kingsway. You'll see the view and immediately see how I was able to find inspiration to write.
-I have been blessed by western hospitality, and more than anything else, will take that back to Ontario with me.
See you in September.
