The Apocalypse and the Monarch Tree
So I'm sitting on a bench down by the swan pond this evening, staring at the signs of The Apocalypse.
Two little trees that have surrendered to the Canadian winter. Already.

And I'm screaming at them, in my mind. How could you do this to me? How could you leave so soon?
And wondering is it just me, or is the whole world going crazy?
In "liberated" Libya an American ambassador and a whole bunch of others are killed because of a REALLY bad movie made by a mystery film maker.
While in Canada, a Jewish television host who also likes to dress up, uses the airwaves to preach hatred against the Roma.
You know, those other Holocaust victims.
And Stephen Harper, who has turned Canada into a pariah state, gets honoured as a Great Statesman.
Harper won the award largely because of his support for Israel and his criticism of Iran. Clearly, though, the foundation either blatantly ignored or didn’t know that Harper is arguably the worst prime minister in history when it comes to defending democracy and human rights in Canada.
Presumably by this guy....
And as we wait to see whether Harper's bosom buddy Benjamin Netanyahu attacks Iran. And wonder what will kill us first, war or global warming?
In the cafeteria of a Montreal hospital, an argument over language ends with the Attack of the Killer Tomato sandwich.
Forty-eight-year-old Alex Montreuil was at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal for a CT scan, the day after the Quebec election-night shooting, when he alleges he was attacked with a tuna and tomato sandwich.
Gawd. I mean tabarnac.Talk about the signs of the Apocalypse. Can The Abyss be far off?
Oh well. Thank goodness my parents taught to look me to look for the good and the beautiful in everything.
And I did come across something amazing today.
A big tree covered in Monarch butterflies...
And it was such a wondrous sight it made my spirits soar like those little winged beauties.
Until Sébastien told me the large number of butterflies this year is due to global warming. Or just another sign of the coming Apocalypse.
And the good news?
I made a little video so you could see what I saw...
Hey. Enjoy what's left of summer.
For it could be a nuclear winter...
