Thank you ...gawd!

So of all the greatest of things that happened in the past number of weeks, months and years gone past, yesterday came crushing in around me, and unveiled itself in the most unlikely of places.

Thank you Heather, and your 90+ years.

I met Heather for all of 15 minutes yesterday, and will never see her again, nor will she remember me. She will pass on from this life never knowing that the meeting with her yesterday was the most AHA moment that I have had in probably the last .. I don't know 15 years or so.

I fervently believe everything has a purpose, as difficult and tragic as some of the things that go on life are, there's just reasons ... I almost wonder if it's the actual universe balancing itself out. (Not crazy here, just an observation).

Anyways ... AS odd as it seems to be ... I think there has been a great protector hovering over me all these years .... keeping me safe from the very job that I was educated and trained to do.

Yesterday Heather called out for help ... and the care staff just walked past and ignored her, and claimed that "she's always like that" ... well for good reason ... something was clearly bothering her. My friend and I sorted Heather out, and walked her back to her room, where she was pleased for 3 minutes of time that we took to simply "attend" to her.

It was that simple.

It was at that moment that it really did come to me ... some higher power has saved me from becoming one of "them". I don't really know who "they" are, but there was certainly an abundance of them yesterday where I happened to visit for 30 minutes.

When I am busily being thankful this weekend, I will give thanks for the greater being that has steered me in many directions, except for the direction that I had hoped to go ... and yet I am already partway there. Believe that.

I will give thanks for the crossing of paths of people that I have been so fortunate to come across. It's for all these reasons that I give thanks to where I am at today, and what direction I am heading in, and what direction my children are heading in.

The boy is busily playing with his band up in Prince George at 3 schools .... encouraging the message of "you can do this" ... it just requires work and dedication to your craft, and just working towards the dream.

The girl will be busily doing her stuff after school that keeps her occupied with the school, on top of finding a cool little job that works her fingertips and her mind with all her social media expertise.

All of this is happening because of the good fortune and the crossing of paths that have happened many years before today.

Again .. good gawd ... I give thanks.

Happy October folks!

The Fuss and I went out to Harrison Hot Springs about three weeks back. It was an impromptu sort of event, which usually just ends up being fun. Which her and I had. I was using my 1.8 prime lens, iso 500 and shutter was I think 1/60

WE had a food photography night at our camera club. It was good learning for me, and I hope to be able to do more,... or at least practice. I can not find my flash drive, and did not submit these images to the camera club, for photo night - but now upon review .. they were worthy or other viewers. The last I know was "Min, can I borrow your flash drive ...?" Ya .. wish I knew what was on it now.

The Jimmyson and his band played the other night at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre. They were smokin incredible! These guys are the Canadian version of One Direction, and yet nobody knows of them. They have a CD which they recorded almost three years ago, but now these guys just sound even better than their CD. I am not freaking kidding you. They need some money in their back pockets to record another album, as they have a list of tunes that need to be layed down. These boys are brilliant. I'm not sure what it takes in a world of mass social media and marketing to get yourself noticed. Do you tweet or do you knock? Not sure.

The only for sure talent agent in this city that I know of is Bruce Allen. I almost think he's done finding people ... so who is the guy waiting in the wings ... ? At this stage of the game, there is NO ONE that could tell me now that these guys are not good enough, perhaps it might be Canada that isn't good enough for them ..
