world book day


 

Always the best time of any day is when I am able to read to our three beautiful grandchildren.

For World Book Day 2021

oh wall…


 

“In this same interlude it doth befall
That I, one Changing Palette by name, present a wall.”

With apologies to Tom Snout the tinker and the Bard.

Today’s moment in the park for Canada’s Pink Shirt Day, with Canadians across the country taking a stand against bullying. Let’s lift each other up and spread a little love and kindness so that every day becomes Pink Shirt Day 🇨🇦

“embraced, enriched, alive”

 

The anonymous poet of the park has inspired us once again capturing so perfectly the magic and beauty of this special place, the Pacific Spirit Park here in Vancouver. Hopefully my photos from yesterday do justice to his/her beautiful words. Thank you to whomever you are and keep inspiring us with your poetry.

 

   

 

   

 

Pacific Spirit Park.

We enter into
A pact
As we leave cars
And concrete behind.
Walk or run or bike
Into a spirit world.
Of water abundant
At this time of year.
Light diminished,
Or the bending rays of
Occasional winter sun.

I see you.
I know you’re here.
I move and listen,
Take such joy
In watching our dog
Run free.
Nodding or briefly chatting
To others,
Clad in rain gear,
Mud splattered shoes.

We join with the forest’s
spirit.
The constancy of movement.
Of air and trees,
Light and water.
Shape shifting through days,
Seasons.
Being one with
All that is here.
A companion guides us.
Embraced, enriched,
Alive.

the fourth season


 
Having shared with you the glories of Spring, Summer and Fall in the Pacific Spirit Park over the past year, today it is Winter’s turn. What a special place it has been for us, raising our spirits every day as it did once again on this cold frosty day today. How lucky we feel, and we never take it for granted.
