Woah! Where has the time gone? So much beauty has passed by and I haven’t had time to write about it all. So here goes… my last four days of beautiful discoveries.
Day 50 – I had a moment when I was at work, when last week’s job-related tasks flashed before my eyes…
- Meetings with creative minded people
- Meetings with business minded people
- Creative writing
… and I realised, Wow, I am a Lucky Girl! I have a beautiful job. It’s difficult, tiring, sometimes boring and sometimes frustrating. But it’s amazing.
Day 51 – A year ago on this day, after almost 12 hours of intense pain, I helped bring one of the most beautiful beings ever into this world. Ok, I’m biased, but I’m supposed to. Happy Birthday Beatrice Beckette Winnifred.
Day 52 – I saw a show on Saturday, but my thoughts only really collected themselves on the Sunday. I won’t go into great detail about the entire show, but I will talk about one particular performance.
I saw someone I’ve known for 30 years completely transformed themselves on stage. This is a person I’ve been through ups and downs with…known socially… worked with… directed. We know each other really well. But what I saw on stage that night was completely unrecognisable. It was amazing.
This person is my Dad. A Franco-Ontarian building supply company co-owner from a small village. He played Tevye in a community theatre production of Fiddler on the Roof. And he was amazing. My Dad.
Day 53 – I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I have always had a giddy, school-girl love of drivethru car washes. I love the sound of the jets spraying the car and the foam that completely envelops everything. Well, the other day, I waited (im)patiently for 30 minutes to get my car cleaned. But boy was it worth it. Much to my surprise, having paid the extra few $$$ to get the “fancy” wash with magic protective potions brought a whole new level of excitement. Near the end of the wash, the car was sprayed with a multicolored foam that made the entire vehicle look like it was tye-dyed. I tried to grab my camera as fast as I could, but I could only get a shot of it as it was being rinsed off. It was awesome. I was a kid again.
