2022 Look Back I
The joy of the luckiest and proudest parents and grandparents in the world celebrating with gratitude our love for our children and our beautiful, amazing and unbelievably talented grandchildren.
Wishing everyone a very Happy, Healthy and Joyful 2023
Look Back II
Celebrating two special places that uplifted our spirits throughout the year, from a sunny Pacific Spirit Park to a very snowy Kitsilano.
Look Back III
These final images of the year are to honour its heroes and despise its villains as we stand with the brave people of Ukraine and Iran and with the girls and women of Afghanistan hoping that 2023 brings victory, peace, freedom and justice for them all.
From the Pacific Spirit Park on this Canada Day 2022 🇨🇦, 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. 🇺🇦
We walked in the Pacific Spirit Park today after listening to President Zelenskyy’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 country’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: “From Spirit Park to Spirit Dark”
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.
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.
