We leave Hamilton tomorrow. My old friend Georges Carillet – I’m sure that he’s reading this – would say that I’ve crossed over to the dark side again. Moody and dark, that’s me. It will be at least three more years before I see my son, Hans, his precious wife, Tamara – the daughter that I never had, and my darling granddaughters, Pippa and Audrey.

A couple of days ago Eunie and I went over to Tamara’s brother’s house for a little family dinner and a few beers. I got all moody and went out the the tracks behind Joel’s house just at the base of the Niagara Escarpment. Of course, I brought my camera along. Little whispers were just beyond my hearing.  I wanted to see if I could discern what they were saying to me. I often hear through my eyes.

Cross over or follow the tracks?Never mind. I’ve never been very interested in staying on the tracks. Crossing back an forth is more exciting.

If you’re making a crossing, take a friend:

Cross over with a friendIf you’re taking a friend with you, make sure that he remembers to bring the beer:

Cross over to the other side - bring the beer!Life’s full of crossings.

This is just another one.
