For the journey thus far
07.11.2014 4 °C
As the fall becomes winter it offers time to contemplate the journey from Gabriola to Budapest to the UK and to Toronto where our grandchildren live.
We have seen ancient castles, gothic cathedrals, baroque towns and cobble streets. We have learned the struggles and tragedies of the innocent, the manipulations of the corrupt and the hopes of those still here. The one element of human nature that impresses me most is the courage of those who have fought injustice with their own integrity. Another which has carried us through this last month, is the kindness and generosity of family and friends, as well as the staff of airlines, hotels and ships who do all they can for the comfort of others.
Thanks to all who helped us make the journey.
