Moments of peace, tranquillity and joy from the Pacific Spirit Park last week to ease our troubled souls. Every day brings news of unimaginable horror, from young children and protesters murdered by troops in Myanmar, school children bombed in their schools in Syria, boys as young as nine beheaded in Mozambique, mass murder in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado; and now here at home terror in a library in North Vancouver with one person killed and six injured.
Today our thoughts are with the families of all those affected and with the community of Lynn Valley, especially the children who witnessed it all on what should have been a happy Saturday afternoon in their local library, and wishing those who have been injured a full recovery. 🇨🇦
Moments for reflection in the Pacific Spirit Park today and there is much to reflect on. Tonight my thoughts are with the Masutta family in Surrey, BC as I send my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Daljit and his 8 year old twin daughters who lost their mum Parmajit in a tragic accident on Tuesday that simply breaks your heart. May she Rest In Peace.
Yesterday I took this picture of one of our beautiful camellia’s illuminated by the afternoon sun. Today I was going to post it for a happy Easter Sunday but now it evokes a very different emotion with the news from Sri Lanka this morning. I post it now with a heavy heart and send heartfelt condolences and sympathy to all those suffering so far away but yet so close, and hope that its beauty will help ease the pain of yet another dark day.

With condolences and deepest sympathy to all those suffering loss and injury today.
Last year I was Charlie and then Paris, today I am Orlando, and once again find myself needing to express my solidarity and sympathy through the best way I know how with all those mourning today in Orlando, in the United States and around the world and particularly with all those in the LGBT community.
