Is anyone looking for a nice country house? My mom is selling her place. The reasons this place is awesome and I will miss it like hell: there's a sauna and a fireplace and a wrap-around deck that is perfect for summer. The area is great for outdoor adventures - hiking, skiing, skidooing, and snowshoeing are all possible from the front door, and swimming, and flat water or white water canoeing/kayaking are super close. We just redid the bathroom and it has a heated floor <3. The neighbours and community are great. There are apple trees and a good sized garden. It's only 35 min from town.
The human capacity to care for others isn’t something trivial or something to be taken for granted. Rather, it is something we should cherish. Compassion is a marvel of human nature, a precious inner resource, and the foundation of our well-being and the harmony of our societies. If we seek happiness for ourselves, we should practice compassion: and if we seek happiness for others, we should also practice compassion.
Saille my dear I'm terrible at keeping up with google + possibly because nothing awesome ever happens on it. I'm sad that I missed this until now. EPIC! Also coat envy! Very glad we got to cuddle puddle whilst you were here I miss you always <3
I can't quite explain what these photos did for me. Something about being still helped me to see a depth in people who maybe I've walked past in the last couple years with little more on my mind than apprehension.
I just donated $30 to help those without shelter, electricity, and toilet facilities in Attawapiskat, Canada. Learn more about the situation by watching the youtube video. Instead of fixing the problem, the provincial and federal governments are squabbling over who's jurisdiction it is. Meanwhile it's supposed to be -12˚C tonight. You can help too; donate to the Canadian Red Cross: http://www.redcross.ca/article.asp?id=41678&tid=001
