after the rain


 
With the need to escape the news for a while today what better place for reflection than the Pacific Spirit Park after the rain.

“be an Adeline”


 
Today over 200,000 Americans have died of Covid-19. How heartbreaking that one of them was 28-year-old Dr. Dr. Adeline Fagan an Ob-Gyn resident in Houston Texas who died on September 19th. My thoughts are with her family, colleagues and friends as I send them my heartfelt condolences. I am also thinking of all my healthcare hero colleagues at this time, particularly our own surgical residents who I know must be as deeply saddened as I am today.
 
“Even in this darkest of times, there are good people willing to share a piece of themselves for the sake of another,” Adeline’s father Brant has written, and he encourages us all, “to be an Adeline.” I can assure him we will.

thoughts elsewhere


 
Yesterday as the Pacific Spirit Park sparkled in the glorious sunshine, and recognizing how fortunate we are here in Beautiful British Columbia, my thoughts are very much with all those suffering the horrific fires in Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona, with my condolences to those who have lost loved ones and communities and very much hoping that their landscapes will soon be restored to the beautiful places that I know they are.

Hope yours was a good one too.

Last night’s sunset in Vancouver was a winner.
Happy Labor Day, especially to our Frontline Heroes
