Three Signs

20 January 2019 – On Carrall Street, near West Hastings …

in the Woodward’s Atrium, heart of the redeveloped heritage site …

and on the washroom door in the Lost and Found Café, West Hastings near Abbott Street.

  1. A relative told me recently that I was “poor”, for various reasons I suppose but given the conversation maybe because I could not go out and buy a new pair of jeans as soon as mine started to fade.
    I think anyone can be thoughtful about money but for some reason, the people with the most tend to be the least thoughtful. Awareness always comes with appreciation, but maybe first some embarrassment, shame?

  2. That last sign really puts things in perspective. We are grateful.

  3. Interesting trio of signs….the statistics in the last one make me wonder, but the sentiment is what’s important, and I know there’s plenty of truth in it. I have no doubt that I was lucky to be born when and where I was.
