With high expectation comes great disappointment.
I came across variations of this quote today and it sent me down a long and winding memory late.
I feel rattled.

As we’re back in quasi-lockdown here in godforsaken Ontario (schools closed, activities canceled, indoor dining gone, Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit delayed ), I thought perhaps we could focus on some positive quotes some smart people are hurling into the socials these days. Because not everyone out there is bitching about covid, right?
So here is one that stood apart for me:Continue reading “About pebbles and mountains”
It’s been 2 years of varying degrees of lockdown and restrictions and the world is politically and pro- and anti-vax divided and parties and family get togethers are illegal and we all know many people will be drunk and high … Continue reading Just a reminder…

Do you know this song by Pink Floyd?
They played this song at highschool dances in my day. Although I didn’t really listen to Pink Floyd much during my adolescence, some of their songs were played often on the radio. This one was hard to miss… And, they still play it today, decades later. A true testament of brilliant genius to the band. 🎶Continue reading “Wish you were here”
