A sunny morning, early in January with my daughter. A breakfast, then dropping her off at her university dorm. From Lethbridge, I travelled along roads taking me from Coalhurst to Standoff, Cardston and Waterton Lakes National Park, then up to Pincher Creek and back home to Edmonton. Enjoying the play of light and shadow in the cloudwork of this day.

Listening to: Gord Downie’s ‘Introduce Yourself;’ a song reminding of my father coping with Alzheimer’s disease.

Listening to: Joni Mitchell’s ‘This Flight Tonight;’ a surprise to find that a Nazareth song I’d listened so often to in my teens was penned, strummed and sung by Joni Mitchell.
