AUTUMN (293/365 DAYS, 4.0)

Despite the cold, 
(I even wore socks yesterday, 
but still sporting shorts, 
with a vest...), 
despite the grey clouds, 
and the rain... 
I enjoy the change of colors in the city, 
the streets and sidewalks covered with fallen leaves, 
more and more trees showing their bare limbs 
as they sway in the wind, 
gently slipping into slumber.

G'MORNING!! (291/365 DAYS, 4.0)

A cool Sunday morning, 
I still managed to catch the sun 
has it reached above the horizon 
and before it slipped behind the bank of clouds.


"FALL MORNING [MONTREAL, 2014]" 

I've been quiet lately. 
Nothing's wrong!! 
I'm just quiet... 
True, 
the light is changing and it affects me, 
but nothing dramatic [so far...]. 
I guess I'm ready for hibernation... 
I'll let inspiration grab me whenever it'll happen. 
I don't feel like forcing it. 
Like this morning, 
I couldn't resist capturing this brief moment. 
I put down the coffee mug, 
grabbed my pants and my camera to go outside, 
and a sweater would have been welcomed, 
but I took my time anyway... 
I'll admit, 
even this bear found it chilly outside!!

THANKFUL in MONTREAL (285/365 DAYS, 4.0)

It is Thanksgiving for Canadian Christians today. 
Is it turkey I smell?!?... 


"TOUR de LÉVIS [ILE SAINTE-HELENE, MONTREAL, 2014]" 

Sure is a pretty sight when I look across the river. 
I gave some background information about the place here.


"MONTRÉAL en ÉVOLUTION [2014]" 

The city is in transition with much going on. 
It will be beautiful again, 
one day... 

I may not be Christian 
but they don't have the monopoly over gratefulness, 
do they?!? 
I am thankful for being born in the '60s, 
to see many ideas evolve and shape our society. 
I am thankful for being born here, 
in Montreal, 
where freedom is possible, 
and where we seem protected from many horrors seen elsewhere. 
I am thankful to those I've crossed path with 
who have made me a better person. 
I may [still] not be a morning person, 
but I am thankful for every sunrise I see. 
Life may not be perfect, 
but I am in the perfect place to face it. 
I wouldn't trade it for the world!! 

How's that for being grateful!?!
