7 May 2020 – They (the omniscient “They” that permeate our lives) insist that our success in handling a situation  depends in part on  the situation itself, and a whole lot on our attitude.

Well, here we are with a situation to handle.

I (the not-omniscient “I”) feel better-equipped when my attitude includes:

gratitude …

humour …

and a bracing shot of nature.

All the better with a regal Great Blue Heron thrown into the mix.

And better yet — talk about good omens — if the freighter lying in the Burrard Inlet “parking lot” beyond bears the name, “Wisdom Line.”

  1. Wisdom Line! That is a good omen. 🙂

  2. How true!

  3. “Wisdom Line?” Seriously? That’s wild! I love your last photo…nature, humor, and wisdom could go far in keeping us from feeling down these days. Did I tell you (I probably did, sorry) that I listen to Bonnie Henry’s briefings often on the radio? I happen to be going to the park around that time and I get a Vancouver station. She’s amazing. 🙂
    (And the other day on a different program, I was educated about the Metis, a group I had never even heard of, so thanks CBC).

    • Dr Henry is great, I’m glad you have access to her & the CBC in general. Funny, I’ve never connected much with NBR, but I do with PBS…
