Things have been crazy busy with work lately so my personal life has been a bit of a blur. Tonight I was fortunate to have dinner with one of my oldest friends, Ryanne. I don’t see her often but the time we spend with each other is always rich. It’s like finding the perfect croissant at a beautiful bakery – the experience is limited in time but it’s delightful and soulful. Not only is she one fine lady, she also makes me laugh the entire night. So much so that my stomach is always sore at the end of the evening. It’s not much of a blog post I guess but sometimes it’s exciting to be reminded of how wonderful and beautiful my friends are. It makes me happy about life and the people who I get to spend time with. It’s been over 20 years of friendship and she still inspires me. After dinner I was driving home in the country through drizzly rain in the darkness. Edmonton was a glow in the distance with pockets of fog and blurriness which made it feel like a dream as I listened to french CBC. The landscape here is subtle but once you are in tune with it, it is a beautiful and awe-inspiring thing. No matter how many times I live away from this city, the landscape and my dear friends and family always calls me back.
