If you want to know what my visit to Churchill, Manitoba looks like when the highlights play on my heart's reel; it's summed up by this video. I am about to book a return to soak up more of this incredibly awesome place.
So good. (I have it on repeat!)
(ADDED: that great tune is by DEAD HORSE BEATS.)
*Yesterday I was hoping to get photos, but I didn't get ANY. I popped in to speak for a Grade 1 class in the inner city AND THEY WERE SO INCREDIBLE. They were excited and in awe of the polar bear stuff I brought them. ESPECIALLY the life-sized drawing we hung on the wall. We drew ringed seals to feed him and my heart grew three sizes. As a thank you I bought them all passes to the zoo to meet Hudson the polar bear cub hoping that businesses might do the same. I know that zoo's are often met with conflicting emotions, but without a zoo influence in my life I would NEVER, NEVER been inspired like I am now.
I want to share that feeling.
Today: painting. I'm still chuckling in my head over some of the funny lines from my date with Dan to see a funny comedian named Matt Falk who stood in valiantly for Rob Schneider (whose plane was rerouted because of snow). Matt, you nailed it.
LAUGHTER IS ALSO SO awesome.
Catch ya next year February. GO!
