Okanagan Valley

British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley …

… is a special place.

As I continue to work in the Northwest Territories, I always miss it, but it seems that because of the lockdown, now more than ever.

I hope I am able to go this summer, but there are no guarantees.

In a world that seems to be turning in on itself, (or is it just turning on us? Is it human arrogance to think that because humans are suffering, the Earth is suffering?) missing home is a very minor thing, but it’s an important touchstone and foundation for us all, even if home is a backpack.

On this June 1, I wish you all a lovely and safe month with good weather, rain when you need it and no lower back pain. 🙂

April 27th’s Monday Marvellous

As our virus battle continues, it’s good to know that nature is benefitting. There’s much less human activity and our oceans, forests, grasslands and animals are reaping the profits.

I hate everything about this situation, but at least nature is getting a break.

And that’s marvellous. 🙂

Another Road

I added three photos of roads to my last post, and here’s another, just for fun. It’s a favourite from a couple of years back and was taken above the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. I love the fact that M and I headed off on a dirt road into all those tall yellow trees. It was a hidden gem of real beauty.

Except for the colours, there’s nothing much of Halloween in this picture. A good route for a ghoul though as they do have to make their escape by midnight tomorrow.

Here’s another photo from the same drive.

Happy Halloween! May you enjoy a chocolate or two and be the subject of few or no tricks. 🎃
