I renewed my word press subscription today. And also note that it’s been several months since my last posting. There isn’t much point having a domain of my own, if I never post anything on it. So I am determined to make an attempt to be more verbose.
I have been trying to figure out why I stopped blogging on a regular basis after once being somewhat prolific, and I think it’s because I’m worried that some people who read it might not like what I have to say. At the end of the day that doesn’t really matter, my blog is for me. My blog is for me to talk about what’s bothering me, making me happy, or just on my mind.
This week, what is on my mind is our new Liberal government. Our new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, seems to be very optimistic and full of hope for our country’s future. I’m really delighted with the cabinet ministers he has appointed, not just because of his commitment to a full balance of both men and women, but because the people appointed to the cabinet seem to be well-qualified for their new roles.
This change in government has filled me with Hope for our nation. I am optimistic that our new PM, and his vibrant and diverse cabinet, will help Canada continue to grow and be the country that is always been in my mind. A nation where all peoples, whether they be indigenous, refugees, immigrants, or (to quote our former PM) old stock Canadians, live together in peace and harmony. Because to me we are all Canadians, whether we have been here five years, 10 years, one generation or 100 years.
Here is a picture from our recent Cruise to Alaska. This experience was fantastic, and the kind of thing I hope to do again in the future. This photo makes me feel peaceful because I remember the fresh clean air, The cool breeze on my face, and the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. And it should come as a surprise to no one who knows me, that I am very much suited to cruising. I think holiday by boat has become my new favorite past time. More on this later.
Blog post one, over and out
