epicentre

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.

You have left us hanging...reminds of a paper you wrote in university about soap operas and how you demonstrated that. So...what did you win?

I wrote a paper about soap operas? You remember my university life better than I do, Kathy! I won some cash, much appreciated cash.
