oh canada

i never thought i could fall in love with a place the way i did last week. at day 5, i cried because i didn't want to leave. on the flight, i cried because the direction i was headed in no longer felt like home. it felt so wrong. i've never felt so accepted, so welcomed, so naturally suited to be in a country that is not where i was born.

heart melting
fear resting
resolve strengthening
eye opening
life affirming

it was all those things
4 me

Glad you liked Vancouver, but we're still waiting and hoping to see you in the little town 400 miles to the north.

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

The reception you are going to receive here in this little town is going to blow your mind. We are soooooo ready for you to be here so that Puffer doesn't have to spend so much time on the phone. And I am ready to be a grandparent.
