Thanksgiving in Harperland:The Sorrow and the Hope
It still takes my breath away. This country so big and so beautiful.
And on this Thanksgiving Day, even in Harperland, I have so many reasons to be thankful.
A roof over my head and enough food to eat. A great companion, a loving family, friends who keep me grounded and make me laugh. Readers who encourage and support me so much.
The simple pleasures of life in Canada...
Like anything to do with boats and bikes eh?
Or the sight of this single solitary Monarch butterfly...
At a time when so many have been wiped out by human greed.
Or the humble animals at little Far Enough Farm, like Jake the Donkey...
Who helped me recover from from the loss of this old friend...
The one who loved this season and its fallen leaves, and I still miss so much.
And it could all be the perfect Thanksgiving, just the right human mixture of joy, hope, and sadness.
Until I remember this...

Because what's wrong with this picture?
How could such a young, big, and beautiful country have such a monstrous leader?
How could this nightmare happen? It's so wrong and so depressing.
And yet on this Thanksgiving day it's also another reason to be thankful. Thankful that I belong to a great progressive family that is determined to drive him and foul Con regime from power.
And thankful for the readers who are following my journey to that great day of victory. For if we have shared the hard times, so too will we share the good ones.
And the day the Cons are defeated will be a day to remember.
A beautiful, glorious, joyful day.
And the best Thanksgiving EVER...
Happy Thanksgiving everybody !!
I hope yours was as good as mine. It's still a big and beautiful country.
We will get it back. The battle starts tomorrow.
And the best is still to come...
