"Liturgy is like a strong tree whose beauty is derived from the continuous renewal of its leaves, but whose strength comes from the old trunk, with solid roots in the ground."

So a couple of weeks ago, this happened. :-D

It had been a couple of years since +Cilla C​ and I had the opportunity to travel back to Montreal and explore. Having made that happen, via train, it's only right that we arranged an afternoon of friendship renewal with the ever charming +Isabelle Fortin​ and her G.

Unlike last time, when it was -25°C, we got to enjoy food and wine and beer and lots of laughter on an outdoor patio.

Two years ago, we made a pie. An apple pie. For Pi Day. We won't be making pie today.

"Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best."

"But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think."

"Emotion is ‘recognition’. When treasured moments are identified in the jungle of our personal history during a visual or aural encounter, we capture magic sparks from our past, arousing flashes of insight and revealing an inner flare. These instants of recognition may kindle enthralling emotion and fulfilling inspiration."

~Words by Erik Pevernagie

Generations

Frank
My paternal grandfather, Frank to his friends and family, lived a good and modest life. Along with my grandmother, he raised my dad and my aunt in Kitchener, Ontario. He was quick with a joke, a smile, a laugh, and always had a story to tell. As a little boy, I liked to sit on his knee and watch the 'mmercials drinking my shlockit milk.

He was a salesmen. And his natural, easy charm afforded him the opportunity to sell high-end wood veneers to the furniture manufacturers that once dotted the small towns in and around southern Ontario until the day he retired.

While my grandmother was not, having lost her battle with cancer in 1991, he was around to meet 4 of his great grandchildren. They called him Grandpa Grandpa. He'd light up when they did.

In early 2002 he lost his battle with cancer, including prostate cancer. He was 86.

For the 7th straight year, I'm participating in Movember to help raise funds for and awareness of men's health. Not only am I growing a cheesy moustache again this year, which I'll be sure to post a picture of before I shave it off, but I'm also doing the MOVEmber challenge, which encourages men to get physically active and exercise throughout the month (and beyond).

If you're so inclined, you can donate to the Movember Foundation via http://mobro.co/heff. This year, I've teamed up with +Isabelle Fortin​, who is once again leading the charge with her Ladies of Movember campaign (https://plus.google.com/+IsabelleFortin/posts/V7DtgHWB6Hs?sfc=false).
