start the day


 
It may be dark outside early in the morning but a view like this from the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver on Monday is a good way to start the day don’t you think?

Yesterday’s photo of the day from the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver with which to start your Sunday; a moment to lift everyone’s spirits. It certainly did ours as I hope it does yours.

life’s illusions


 
Yesterday’s reflective moment in Fisherman’s Wharf, Vancouver as I return to the leaves today.
 

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all.”

Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now
 

546 leaves


 
I have begun this drawing of the 546 leaves I collected today from the Pacific Spirit Park to represent the 546 children separated from their parents. As a parent and grandparent who loves his children and grandchildren so much this is my way of representing the heartbreak and the anguish being felt by so many families suffering in this tragic story of state supported kidnapping of children.
 

 
As the drawing continues I will post its progress and will be thinking of each child as I draw every one of these fragile leaves.
