“Canada is an evolving idea, built around what we’ve come to think of as national traits: decency, forbearance, inclusiveness. There’s the land itself, but really it’s about the growing mix of people who inhabit it and the culture that springs from them.”
From the Globe and Mail editorial of June 30th 2015
On a personal note, hope that this weekend has been good to Ivan, Poppy, and to you! Take care! :-)
Marion, and Sophie are artistically gifted and they work so hard. Would you like to see a sample of their work? Thank you!
A great weekend for all of you, and Shabbat Shalom for some of you!
” “Family hug,” I would announce as the children prepared to leave, after they were bundled into their coats and hats and mittens, and the six of us would gather near the door and squeeze together in a tight circle. “Kiss, kiss, kiss,kiss, kiss,” we would all go, puckering lips against cheeks and foreheads.”
