back from land of canucks

I just spent a week in upper Manitoba with my son and good friends.  Although I usually get a little nervous when in such isolated areas of the world, the beauty of the Canadian wilderness is breathtaking and tranquil.

If you ever get the chance to go to north — go!  But before you do, read Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw, Travels in Search of Canada by Will Ferguson.   He explains how “Canada is, in fact, not so much a country as it is a collection of outposts –basically a canoe route.”  Ferguson, himself a canuck, weaves historical fact with funny observations about our good neighbors to the north.

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
