It’s the day before the long Thanksgiving Weekend and I have a moment after signing off from work to write a quick post.  For a number of reasons all pertaining to work, it’s been the most brutal of weeks for me. Though I accept it as a price of the role I’m in, in this IT industry, and in this time.  Despite the intensity of conversations I have had and the range of emotions covered, I remain thankful for a great many things. They can be symbolized by a million photos but in this moment I choose this one.


I took the photo from the Toronto Islands towards the city in August one evening when Mamie and I were there with our nieces and a group of friends.  Yes, the silhouette of the towers set against that Raphael sky is striking but here is what I think of when I see this picture.

  • People and dreams
  • Faith and luck
  • Hope and future
  • Peace and thoughtfulness

Happy Thanksgiving
