Canada Day 2022


 
From the Pacific Spirit Park on this Canada Day 2022 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, with gratitude to all of our health care heroes who have worked tirelessly over the past two years or more so that we can all finally gather together once again, and remembering the lost generations of children from the residential schools who never made it home; but with disappointment and anger that too many of our fellow citizens remain an unworthy rabble that still fails to understand the meaning of the word Freedom. They need only to look to the brave Ukrainian people who are fighting not only for their freedom but for ours also, in their battle against the war criminal sitting in the Kremlin. That is freedom that we must all fight for in whatever way we can until this war is over and Ukraine is free once again. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

From Spirit Park revisited

 

We walked in the Pacific Spirit Park today after listening to President Zelenskyyโ€™s impassioned address to the Canadian Parliament in which we learnt that ninety seven children have been tragically killed in his beloved country together with so many of the countryโ€™s brave men and women and now including three brave journalists. Our condolences and thoughts are with all the families, friends and colleagues grieving today.

 

 

This drawing is from a larger piece from 2017 drawn in protest at that time to an event that had produced the same sense of heartbreak and outrage that I know we all feel today. Some of you may remember the full piece can be seen here: โ€œFrom Spirit Park to Spirit Darkโ€

 

 

These sunflowers are a message of love and support as we continue to Stand with Ukraine.

As a new year begins the magic continued today in the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver.

Happy New Year

 

From the beauty of Kits Beach yesterday to our last walk of the year in the magic of the Pacific Spirit Park today that was more magical than ever.

Wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year, and a special New Years Eve thank you to all of our health care heroes who have been there for us every day of 2021.


 
Inspired in the studio this afternoon by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Spirit Park from this morning’s walk: the music of the wind swaying the trees above and the rustling of myriads of falling leaves in the rain alighting on the trails and woodland floor below.
 

I couldn’t help but be inspired by the privilege of experiencing such precious moments as these.

National Physicians Day


 
Four special moments from the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver today on our National Physicians Day here in Canada, a day for me to say thank you to all of my amazing colleagues who have worked so hard this past difficult year together with all of our frontline heroes. I am in awe of them all.
