Happy Canada Day!

“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.”

Happy Father’s Day!

” “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.”
