Welcoming Another Year of Wonder

    • Hi, Maureen, yes and nice coincidence! I very much like Rilke as well and this quote is one that I’ve used on new year’s cards and the like for a while. Perfect sentiment for appreciating life’s mysteries and which, from your postings, I know you also appreciate. All the best, Brett 🙂

  1. A beautiful shot; I’m familiar with Halifax, but not this part of NS.

    Your blog is flattering but puzzling (I’m a new follower.) You don’t live here, so aren’t subject to the sleazy politicians, high taxes, terrible climate (freezing cold winters) and one of the worst environmental records in the western world. Oh Canada! Is this a case of the “grass being greener?”

    Happy New Year to you as well; I look forward to further posts.

    • Richard, thanks for your comments. Sadly, the things that you mention for parts of Canada are also true of many parts of the U.S. I’m mindful of the cautionary note that the grass is not always greener and that perceptions from afar are not the most reliable, but so many things are matters of degree. All the best, Brett
