Four grown kids, six delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
I woke before 5 this morning, gave in and got up at 5:45 admitting that I wasn't going to get back to sleep.
It was worth it.
I drank my tea while watching this.
And now I want to share it . . .
The Canadian Forces Snowbirds that will burn considerable fossil fuel in these skies today can add nothing but noise -- their fancy tricks have little appeal for me. How can they compete with, or contribute to, this natural beauty?
