Wow! new look -- I love that ochre background! I really enjoyed your post about how our country is perceived -- how strange it must have felt to see the map of BC on a wall of someone who hasn't been here, in a country that we assume little thinks of us -- and for such a reason. Hmmmm.
Despite his physical condition and the condition of his voice, seeing Lightfoot must have been amazing -- he's such an icon. And of course that song's been on a loop in my mind -- an earwig! -- since I read your piece.

yes, I'm a little slow, but still discovering new things about creating a blog--had no idea all those colours were available! It's really like choosing paint colours for wall to hang paintings on. what fun!

Hi Alison,

Trudy and Briony here. It is Halloween and we are on Gabriola with Robin Hood looking at the same view that you have facing east and so we thought of you. The blog looks great. Trudy is sick so I am taking charge and giving her hot toddies and making her slow down. We went to the haunted house, A gabriola tradition. It was fantastic. IT was called the circus of lost souls. We'll write again now that we have found you.
