Life goes on.

It seems that Everyone Has An Opinion about current affairs and how they are being handled, mishandled, what have you.

In this concerning, confusing time, life goes on. I will continue to record and share pieces, fragments, of the world around me. My continued intent is to create a calm and reflective place.

This Northern Cardinal is an infrequent visitor to my feeder at work. It was good to see him today!

Canadian Pacific Railroad Holiday Train.

The CP Holiday Train came to my part of the world today so I went to see. There are actually two trains – the Canadian train and the US train. This was the US train; on Monday it will begin making stops in the States.

This is the 21st year the train has made its journey to collect food and funds for local food banks. So of course I donated some food and money to our local food bank. The hook to draw people to the event is that a musical performer performs a short free concert at each stop. The performer(s) on this years’ US train is Alan Doyle (of Great Big Sea fame) and his Beautiful Band. The weather was not bad for the end of November – overcast, a light breeze, temperature about 33F or 1C.

I was fortunate to see the show, and fortunate to be in a position to donate for people in need.
