The wildness of the ocean on our stunning west coast in Tofino is as great a place as any, to sit quietly with my thoughts. I love the contrast of the rough waves and the silent rainforest. My soul and skin have started to breathe in the moisture, dry and crackly from an unseasonably warm and dry prairies this year. The famed winter storms that bring many Canadians and tourists alike here in December and January are starting to slowly build up as October comes to an end. The Canadian 2015 election is now history, with a young Justin Trudeau getting his kick at the can. Back to socialistic deficits I suppose, as he has certainly promised to do … have seen this go round and round a few times in my lifetime. Let’s see how it works this time … hopeful, always hopeful for positive change. Will miss the strong stoic steady leadership of Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. Style and flair wins the day with the majority of Canadians. Not exactly my cup of tea ….
Pandering politicians have never appealed. But, I am an eternal optimist and welcome change into the political landscape. Ever adaptable. Perhaps the new paradigm in politics that I have been yearning for, is indeed emerging. Need to shift gears and tally ho onwards :).
