Final Post Until September

In less than 24 hours I will be leaving this great continent for another, and will most likely not have internet access for the next month or so. That being said, this is my last post for a while. Here are some things I've thought to share:

-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.
