I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Sept 7th Montreal Botanic Gardens.

I wanted to be outside - having had so little sun at home so we settled on the Botanical Gardens for our second full day in Montreal and very pleasant it was too.

Miscellaneous Montreal

After the chapel we walked back thro'Old Montreal had a very nice lunch then gotin the car and went up the 'mountain' or up 'nob hill' as I thought of it where the rich anglophiles live - as well as great views over the city we had a very interesting drive around the area and theen finished the afternoon by the rapids on the river before going back for supper.

Well worth a visit.
Think these were illegal pics but didn't realise until after I had taken them.

The first is the original wooden statue of the 'Virgin Mary" - Star of the Sea - that topped the chapel from 1848 -1893

Ihe second is one of a number of saints

Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel

(viewed 428 times)
Often known as the Sailors'Church the chapel's history goes back to 1657 when a wooden chapel was built on the site. The little wooden statuette was above the offertry candles - proper candles I'm pleased to say one of which I lit a thing I tend to do in special churches in memory of our parents
