* I'm wearing sunglasses again. I usually don't need them in the winter. This picture is from Sunday atop Mont Royal (the 1000 foot hill in the middle of the city.
* I noticed that they're selling new shoes with a "dirty" look. Dirt as fashion statement. Agape doesn't begin to define my facial expression.
*Lebanese food is big in Montreal. I like it, but I usually don't know exactly what I'm eating.
* The personal lives of celebrities hold no interest for me. (Currently anyway. I do recall some interest in OJ and Woody Allen some time back)
* If voting (like driving) is a privilege, why don't we have to pass some kind of test first? Shouldn't people have to prove that they understand the question before they answer it?
* The sun is a good teacher. It is necessary for survival but too much gives sunburn.
* I've never seen a baby pigeon or seagull. Do they hatch as adults? Have you ever seen a seagull or pigeon "chick"?
* I've been thinking lately how western culture/media encourages us to indulge our every whim. "You deserve it", "Just do it" , "Because you're worth it" and the like are teaching us not only to respond to our every base desire, but also to avoid any and all instances of discomfort.
And it breeds the feeling of entitlement, which I abhor.
I'm sorry, but I don't think our purpose here is to sit around, indulging every whim and hiding out from discomfort. There's got to be more to it than that.
