SUPER COZY IN MY HILLARY CLINTON SOCKS

THE US ELECTION did not go the way many Canadians expected but I found comfort wearing my Hillary Clinton socks. Although this Christmas gift from my daughter kept my feet warm during a cold spell in Southwest BC, my footing is shaken. I now see that tried and true institutions, norms of decency, the facts and even democracy can unravel anywhere like a cozy old pair of socks.

Not only people but plants need comforting it seemed when I discovered this fisherman at the entrance to Crescent Beach draped in a housecoat.

BLEAK YEAR ENDS WITH A BEAUTIFUL AFTERGLOW

THE YEAR 2016 was filled with bad things happening in the world too numerous to contemplate here. Nature walks were a soothing balm during sad news events but our outdoor excursions were limited this past while due to snow and ice. Recent milder weather just days before the New Year, however, warmed up the pathways and scenery. At this writing it looks like the bleak year will end with a beautiful afterglow. Hopefully, it's a good omen for brighter days to come.
