Goodbye / Hello

Goodbye, Toronto …

and hello, Vancouver.

“Traveller, there is no path,” says Antonio Machado (1875-1939). “Paths are made by walking.”

    Thanks for telling me, Penny, all these things I didn’t know about Toronto, and reminding me of things thing I did.

    I hope I remain on your posting list to learn Vancouver through you eyes.

    Best wishes with whatever you’re going to do.

    Best, L

    • Larry, that’s really special. You taught me a lot as well. I hope you continue to enjoy the blog, enjoy the other places I walk — as well as what will certainly be return visits to Toronto.

  4. Vancouver’s about to have many paths made! The Vancouver image is a wonderful first of many. The expression is anticipatory. Settle well. What’s the reference to Guernsey?

    • I move in, here in Vancouver, on 1 May. On 5 May… I leave for a holiday in England, starting in Guernsey. You’ll see!

    Did you know that “Hello/Goodbye” is the traditional greeting on the planet Trafalmador? (From Vonnegut’s Slaughter House Five one of my favorite books) So I return the greeting: HELLO/GOODBYE!
