This is turning into a very lucky place for me.
The confluence of the Bow and the Elbow rivers is where, over the past year and a half, I have seen shiny new roads pass under and guitar shovels break the ground. This is where I have watched the unveiling of public art and the elevation of the food truck to the level of essential service. It's where I have discovered hopefulness among the homeless and healthy rebirth along river pathways. It's a neighbourhood where I have rubbed elbows with some fascinating movers and more than a few shakers.
What a boffo surprise, then, to return home from the coast to find I had won a rather remarkable prize, here on the very spot that has been the centre of my imagination for the past eighteen months.
