As much as I admire the wily street smarts of the cunning crow, I can’t say the same for the seagull–nature’s version of a wedding crasher. You suck, seagull. You’re an unabashed fish & chips thief!!!!!
You may have noticed that I’ve been annoyingly posting more than once a day. I beg your forgiveness. It’s not my intention to bog down your blog readers. I’m playing catch-up, ’cause I’m only at #77 and I started before New Year’s Day (over 100 days ago…can you believe it). Sort of reminds me of my days of skipping class at university (shhhhhh…don’t tell my teenagers I said that).

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might notice that I like crows. They’ve got personality, and they’re rife with symbolism. Now if only I could get them to stop spying on me from my neighbour’s roof and swooping in for my bird feeders the minute they think I’m not in the kitchen. They won’t get the best of me, though. I’ve got a crack team of four-legged furry crow snipers, who I trained to fly out the back door and on to the lawn at the mere whisper, “Go get ’em.”

This noble Haida totem pole stands at White Rock Beach in British Columbia, overlooking the peaceful bay. There are a pair of these beautiful works of art and I’ve loved them since the minute they were erected, in 1998. I grew up learning about the indigenous people of the pacific northwest, and their art and culture have impacted so many parts of my life. These poles are a beautiful reminder to gentle with our environment and our neighbours.

These glorious old trees line both sides of the street around the corner from my home. I love to pause as I walk across the street to get the full effect of this cherry extravaganza (they’re probably plum trees and I’m getting it completely wrong)! We’ve been lucky this year because it hasn’t been raining, and the blossoms get a chance to absolutely show off. How lucky am I?!
