Another unexpected pattern

greenwallReturning from Phoenix, it was refreshing to see this vertical green wall at the airport in Vancouver. The desert is beautiful but a week of the prevailing attitude of doing very little about the environment really got to me.

Two hundred years from now people will look at us and be so angry at the legacy we are leaving.  I feel rage at the slave trade that has left us with a legacy of racism and waste of human potential, but people were caught up in a system that made it easy to do the wrong thing.

Playing with Food

foodquiltThis is a collection of four different kinds of cheese crackers I got for my birthday.  Having noticed that they were subtly different colours I couldn’t resist designing a quilt.

Of course one of the first rules of etiquette is that once you’ve touched something, you should eat it, so I did!
