Yes, this is a picture of me.  I am totally shocked to the point of being unable to contain myself and look calmly at the camera.

Do you know why I find myself in such an extreme state?

Check back in a few days, and I'll tell you.

My Favourite Playground

We discovered this amazing playground just outside of Golden, BC in the Blaeberry.  It's truly a work of art!

We begin the year in the depths of winter, only a few steps past the solstice .  The lengthening days are reason enough for optimism, anticipation, and even a little confabulation.

May you have a Happy (with a capital H) 2013.

May the year bring unanticipated pleasant surprises.
