The view from here

After the events of this past week - the shooting on Parliament Hill being large in my mind - plus international events - the spread of the Ebola virus also being large in mind - I can't help but feel particularly lucky to be where I am. 

Today in Norway House it is grey and misty. The snow that I wrote about earlier this month has melted away and the temperature is relatively mild.  The trees and shrubs, now bare, clustered leaflessly together, look like woven baskets.   As I walked back and forth from the college where I teach, only a few ravens were out and about, lazily coasting over the treetops. 

It is, in a word, peaceful.  And that's nothing to take lightly.
