“embraced, enriched, alive”


 

Thank you to whoever posted this beautiful poem in the Pacific Spirit Park today.
 
  
 

“the bending rays of occasional winter sun”

a celebration for the ages


 
Love shining through at the end of this day of days. The world is suddenly a safer place for our children and grandchildren and that’s something to truly celebrate.💕

God speed

On the occasion of the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris, with the inspiring and moving words of both the 46th President and the first youth poet laureate of America, Amanda Gorman, still resonating in my mind:
 

 

Congratulations America. Welcome back.
 

 

I hope you know how much you’ve been missed.
 

 

Happily all’s well with the world today.
 

 

Good luck and God speed.

MLK day


 
A beautiful morning in the Pacific Spirit Park on this most inspiring of days. Thinking of family and friends down south who are honoring the memory and legacy of Martin Luther King today. I hope his words of love and grace will lead towards justice and peace in the challenging days ahead.
 

home stretch


 
666+80…entering the home stretch, with the hope that home is coming soon for the children so cruelly separated from their parents at the US border by the criminal administration that in three days will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
 
How reassuring to learn from the interview between Jacob Soboroff and Alicia Menendez on MSNBC in which Ron Klain the Chief of Staff to President-elect Biden states that in the first 10 days he will…
 
“…fulfill his promises to restore dignity to our immigration system and our border policies, and start the difficult but critical work of reuniting families separated at the border.”
 
Watch the interview at @jacobsoboroff and make sure to read his book “Separated.”

rays of hope


 
Two moments from the past week in the Pacific Spirit Park. In these dark days a little light peeking through lifts us all up and gives us hope, something I think you’ll agree we all need at the moment.
 

black shirt day


 
666+…in progress – Day LXVII with 11 new leaves in the studio today wearing my black shirt in support of this first Black Shirt Day in BC. “The time is always right to do what is right” – Martin Luther King Jr
 

in remembrance


 
In memory of one of Canada’s greatest Olympians. Like so many of us I remember the excitement and pride watching Kathleen Heddle, together with her rowing partner Marnie McBean, capturing two gold medals for Canada at the Summer Olympic Games of 1992 in Barcelona and a further gold medal in Atlanta in 1996. Yesterday we learnt the sad news of her passing at the age of 55 after a long battle with cancer. I send my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. Her beautiful memory is in all of our thoughts today. 🇨🇦

impeached again


 
One week after a failed bloody insurrection led by a traitorous tyrant how good it is to see that the pen continues to be mightier than the sword.
