This is my Canada….
Beautiful. Strong. Fragile and breathtaking.
From fields touched with gold, to forests deep and green, to secret, solitary beaches, exploring roads less traveled to find those moments and vistas evocative of a Tragically Hip song…this is my Canada. Wind blowing through my hair, mosquito bites and sunburns watching sunsets so stunning it makes your heart clench to see such beauty.
Wherever you are, and however you spend this day, its moments like this that bring us together in the spirit of this amazing land…and it’s in that place of mystery, awe and magical beauty we must hold onto the truth that there will always be more that binds us, than divides us.
Happy Canada Day my friends. 🙂 Cue the Gord Downie lyrics….
“First thing we’d climb a tree and maybe then we’d talk
Or sit silently and listen to our thoughts
With illusions of someday casting a golden light
No dress rehearsal, this is our life”
– “Ahead By a Century” (Trouble at the Henhouse, 1996)
