What a treat today enjoying the sublime Yuja Wang whose breathtaking virtuosity was on full display on the final day of Virtual Verbier Festival, thanks to Medici TV. Seeing and hearing her play is such a privilege and in these troubled times her inspirational artistry uplifts us all.
Thank you Yuja.
What better way to start the BC Day long weekend than walking in the majestic Pacific Spirit Park on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We never take for granted how fortunate we are. Have a safe and sunny weekend and if you are working for us all my heartfelt thanks as always.
Thank you to my beautiful daughter for my present. The possibilities are endless.
Portland, USA, July 2020.
“Victims in their own country of state sponsored violence…
…And someday, when we do finish that long journey toward freedom; when we do form a more perfect union – whether it’s years from now, or decades, or even if it takes another two centuries – John Lewis will be a founding father of that fuller, fairer, better America…
…where real courage comes from. Not from turning on each other, but by turning towards one another. Not by sowing hatred and division, but by spreading love and truth. Not by avoiding our responsibilities to create a better America and a better world, but by embracing those responsibilities with joy and perseverance and discovering that in our beloved community, we do not walk alone.”
Words from President Barrack Obama’s inspiring eulogy and call to action today at the moving funeral for the late Congressman John Lewis.
A perfect summer afternoon in the Pacific Spirit Park today.
Seeing the body of the late John Lewis crossing this bridge for the last time yesterday was a moment that seemed to capture a nation at a crossroads, with the hope that the bridge will be renamed after him, a true national hero and the conscience not only of the Congress but of the whole country.
Dedicated to his memory.
Every minute nothing but pure joy and love from the early morning hug to the bedtime kisses and everything in between, including seaweed moustaches at the beach (photos prohibited I’m afraid).
Everyone should be lucky enough to have a BFF.
Our granddaughter made this beautiful necklace for hers. ❤️
All together again for the second time in six months.
Oh happy day.❤️
