A Summer Sunday in Vancouver


Today is one of those marker days. It is a benchmark day by which many days that have passed and many yet to come will be judged and ranked. This is not just that the weather is perfect. Or that I find myself in excellent health. It is this glorious state of mind. I am thinking more clearly than I have in a very long time. It seems that I am peering through this crack in time where I can see far into the future. What I see is exhilarating.

The clarity that I am experiencing I wish for everyone. I know that whatever happens I can handle it. I know that I will love again like I never have before. Experience has taught me that lasting through events is most the important thing. Sometimes things happen to us and sometimes we cause things to happen which are difficult and painful to experience. With me it was always finding a way of getting through the next moment, then the next, and the next… The Japanese proverb tells it all; “Fall down seven times stand up eight”.

I am not superman or anything close. I am a person that lived through some incredible darkness and misfortune to see the sun shine again. It is shining today brighter than it has ever shone before.

I wish the same for you.

Are you up for an adventure?
