in a few short hours i will be heading to montreal again. I picked up the loveliest of house sitters a little while ago, i am lucky to have found such good people. i took the photograph above with my iphone while mist and fog began to fall last weekend in old montreal. this weekend i must do a few things and other things i will leave to chance. most of all i want to walk, sip good coffee and if possible let go of a few things. last weekend it was such a wonderful end of a birthday year and the beginning of another, instead of feeling older i felt younger. i shared this time with my dear friend kimberly, i think there just some people who you are meant to meet and share time with who make you feel whole. i laughed and laughed, she said to me on our return to the hill i did not know the side of you who dances in the hotel room and sings and laughs, i know what she meant, i have been so still & quiet which is me as well but the person she saw last weekend that is the me that no longer felt in the shadows but instead a sense of freedom like a bird in the sky falling and floating, a feeling that had escaped for too long.
