The more art centers the better! Vancouver has wonderful sites for culture, but there is so much more possible in the surrounding areas for this kind of development. I'm heartened to read that things are moving in this direction. We have more than enough shopping and sports centers. Support the arts

Mr. Saul is someone who makes me proud to be Canadian. His intellect and ability to articulate insights derived from it, continues to astound and inspire me. Given the worrying trend toward far-right, logocentric, hyper-rational, discourse in our current political climate, his is a public voice much needed to provide some proper perspective.

Here in Vancouver, we have an amazing variety of cuisines to choose from. These are two of my favorites: Vietnamese and Japanese/Pho with Springrolls and Ramen with Gyoza.

Today would have been Glenn Gould's 80th birthday. His life and legacy are still celebrated 30yrs after his death at age 50. I have such a profound and deep admiration for him that I have adopted him as my personal patron saint of artistic integrity. #glenngould

A seeker of Ordered Wholeness amidst Chaotic Fragmentation.
I am trying to cultivate, deeply and sincerely, what I see&feel lives within myself (and also in all living beings) at the fundamental heart level. In a world which is moving more and more in the direction of alienation and fragmentation, I stand opposed to such social disintegration. Underneath this spectacle of societal suicide lies the life-force of unification and integration. I will use what talent and skills I possess to champion those aspects of humanity which bring people together in a spirit of openness and solidarity. 
 The circle is a most powerful and sublime symbol&shape with which to see&feel Unbroken Wholeness. Perhaps Google+ will extend and enrich each one's personal circle, the way intended by A.Einstein when he wrote: 
 'A human being is a part of a whole, called by us the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its entire beauty.
 In my humble view, Einstein's perspective exemplifies this equation: diversity+inclusion = a balanced & harmonious humanity.
