Just watched the Oilers lose to Carolina from a tex mex restaurant in Banff, Alberta. Earlier in the evening, in the hot springs, a lifeguard mistook me for an American.

"Welcome to Canada", he said, sweeping a hand toward the magestic backdrop.

"Oh, no, I'm here from Toronto."

"Welcome to Canada", he laughed.

I've never seen sky so large. I've never seen such mountains. Relentless beauty - overwhelming.

Goodnight. Layla tov.

How totally odd. I just read a post by RONIN ( who sez Carolina's his new favorite team.

Coincidence? I THINK NOT>>>>

A few months ago they were running Alberta tourist ads in California. I guess not only Virginia is for lovers anymore. They emphasized the something-for-everyone angle. And the sky was freakin' huge.

my cousin lives in Calgary.
she hates it.
i'll take her word for it.
big skies and majestic mountains don't do it for me.
grubby streets and odoriferous bars do, though.

I LOVE YOU said...
